June/July 2020

Phase 1 Concept & Feasibility stage is complete, and we are now at the Phase 2 Options Selection stage.

The Study Area and Scheme Constraints are being identified.

  • We have identified the broad project study area within which the proposed road could feasibly be located.
  • The project team is now in the process of identifying any constraints within this area that could impact on how and where the Scheme is designed.
  • Constraints include Economic, Engineering and Environmental issues such as communities, industry, archaeological and environmental factors, that the project team needs to be aware of before it progresses to designing a route for the Scheme.
