The N61 Ballymurray to Knockcroghery Road Project
Public Consultation No. 2 - Stage 1 Option Selection – November 2019
Roscommon County Council (RCC), with the support of Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), is progressing the Planning & Design of the N61 Ballymurray to Knockcroghery Road Project. Roughan & O’ Donovan – Aecom Alliance (ROD-A) were appointed in November 2018 by RCC to progress the project through the Feasibility, Route Selection, Design & Statutory Process Phases.
The N61 currently experiences traffic levels in the region of 8,000 vehicles per day at Ballymurray, with traffic levels significantly increasing to over 13,000 vehicles per day (AADT) on the approach to Athlone. The existing route is substandard in terms of horizontal and vertical alignment, cross-section, sightlines and has a high number of junctions and direct accesses, all of which add to its poor road safety record.
The Option Selection Phase has commenced, and Route Corridor Options have been developed within the study area. Please note that the current study area for the project is larger than what was presented at the First Public Consultation in March 2018. This second non-statutory public consultation is seeking feedback on the Route Corridor Options presented to assist the design team in their decision-making process, when further refining the corridor options and selecting the emerging preferred route.
