Leitrim County Council, in partnership with Roscommon County Council, Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the Department of Transport are committed to developing the N4 Carrick‐on‐Shannon to Dromod Project. The N4 national primary road, from Dublin to Sligo, is a strategic corridor which connects Dublin to the northwest and border counties. The section of the N4 under consideration passes through both rural and urban environments, is approximately 21km long and extends from Drumharlow townland west of Carrickon-Shannon to Faulties townland east of Aghamore. The aim of the project is to resolve the transportation issues identified on the N4 corridor within the study area by developing an appropriate sustainable solution which meets the project objectives.

Arup were appointed to provide multi‐disciplinary engineering consultancy services for delivery of Phases 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the TII Project Management Guidelines (TII PMG) for this project. Phase 1, Concept and Feasibility for the project was completed in July 2020 and the project is currently at Phase 2 Option Selection.

The second non‐statutory public consultation will take place from 19 May 2021 to the new, extended deadline of 25th June 2021. The purpose of this consultation is to inform the public and stakeholders of the transportation Alternatives and Options being developed for the project, the work undertaken to date and the programme for advancement of the project.

Due to restrictions put in place for COVID‐19, Leitrim County Council is unable to hold a public consultation event in‐person within the study area for the project. Instead, an online public consultation platform is available on the project website www.carrickdromod.ie from 2pm on 19 May 2021 until the new, extended deadline of 25th June 2021 and contains all the information that would normally be displayed at a formal in‐person public consultation. This online public consultation platform provides a virtual public consultation room and interactive maps showing the transportation Alternatives and Options developed to date, a brochure, an online feedback form for submission of comments or queries and a facility to book a live telephone or online meeting with one of the project representatives.

Alternatively, if you are unable to access the consultation via the website, consultation material can be made available to you by post from:

Leitrim County Council, Áras an Chontae, St. Georges Terrace, Carrick‐on‐Shannon, Co. Leitrim, N41 PF67
