Route for N17 project in east Mayo due to be published in October

THE emerging preferred route for the new N17 project in east Mayo should be known in October.

The Sligo Regional Design Office (RDO) has issued an update on the selection of the emerging preferred corridor (phase 2 of the Transport Infrastructure Ireland Project Management Guidelines) for the N17 Knock to Collooney (Atlantic Economic Corridor) project.

The N17 Knock to Collooney route is continuing to progress through the option selection process.

A draft emerging preferred corridor and draft option selection report underwent a review process in July. Actions arising from this review are currently being established.

It is intended that this additional work will be conducted over the months of August and September.

Subject to satisfactory conclusion, the Sligo RDO hope to be in a position to publish the emerging preferred corridor in October.

The RDO, in a statement, said it appreciates the public’s continued patience as these final checks and analysis are conducted.
