Emerging Preferred Route Options (Public Consultation No. 3)




Galway County Council is co-ordinating the development of a transportation solution for Galway following the quashing of the original N6 Galway City Outer Bypass project by the Supreme Court in 2013. The current project is being managed by the National Roads Project Office (NRPO) of Galway County Council on behalf of both Councils under an agreement made pursuant to Section 85 of the Local Government Act 2001. A dedicated project office staffed by the appointed consultant, Arup, has been established beside the NRPO in Ballybrit.

The purpose of this public consultation is to provide an update on the accompanying Integrated Transport Management Programme, invite comment on the ongoing studies on the sustainable elements of the overall transport solution, outline the method of selection of the Emerging Preferred Route Corridor and provide details of the Emerging Preferred Route Corridor for the N6 Galway City Transport Project.

Public consultation forms an important part of advancing the design process and allows the involvement of the public in developing the design and informing the Environmental Impact Assessment. In order to afford an opportunity for the public to be fully informed and to raise questions, concerns and comments for future consideration, public consultation sessions will be held at the following locations:

Date                                        Time                              Venue

Monday 25 May 2015          2.00pm-8.00pm          Menlo Park Hotel, Terryland

Tuesday 26 May 2015          2.00pm-8.00pm          Westwood Hotel, Dangan

At the public consultation sessions, drawings of the developed option and public transport options will be on display.

Galway County Council values the opinion of the community and welcomes comment from the public and interested parties. Staff from Galway County Council (Galway National Roads Project Office), Galway City Council and Arup will be available to answer questions at both venues.
