Kilbeggan Link Scheme
Offaly County Council, in partnership with Westmeath County Council and in association with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), is developing the N52 Tullamore to Kilbeggan Link Scheme.
The N52 Tullamore to Kilbeggan Link Scheme is now at the ‘Option Selection’ Phase in accordance with the TII Project Management Guidelines.
The Project Team has undertaken an appraisal of the Route Corridor Options published in November 2020 and has considered feedback received through the second non-statutory Public Consultation to identify an ‘Emerging Preferred Route Corridor’. The project is now at the third stage of non-statutory Public Consultation and the team are seeking feedback on the Emerging Preferred Route Corridor.
Emerging Preferred Route Corridor
The Emerging Preferred Route Corridor is a combination of Option 2 (Purple Corridor) and Option 3 (Orange Corridor), from the five Route Corridor Options outlined during the second stage of Public Consultation.
Following completion of the Stage 2 Project Appraisal process, a combination of Options 2 and 3 (referred to as Combination Option 2-3) has been identified as the optimum Route Corridor Option, having regard to the overall benefits and impacts based on the six criteria to be considered for transport projects: Economy, Safety, Environment, Accessibility and Social Inclusion, Integration and Physical Activity.
At this stage of the project process, we want to hear your views on the Emerging Preferred Route Corridor. We welcome your feedback on any issues or information which you think should be considered in the identification of the Final Preferred Route.
The Emerging Preferred Route Corridor is typically 200m wide. The 200m corridor does not represent the actual width of the road scheme or the lands to be acquired – the corridor indicates the lands within which the N52 road scheme could be developed.
The exact details of the land take, earthworks, junction and side road design and property impacts will be developed during the next phase of the planning and design process.
