Update No. 14: March 2023 - Design Update
Clare County Council is progressing the development of the N19 Shannon Airport Access Road Improvement Scheme in partnership with Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the Department of Transport. Fehily Timoney and Clandillon Civil Consulting are the appointed Technical Advisors to advance the project through the planning and design stages. The project is being managed by the Mid West National Road Design Office on behalf of Clare County Council.
The Preferred Option that was announced in November 2021 included a combination of active travel measures for walking and cycling, improvements to public transport, along with new and improved road infrastructure between Drumgeely roundabout and Knockbeagh Point roundabout on approach to Shannon International Airport.
Since the conclusion of the Public Display of the Preferred Option, the design team have been progressing the design and environmental evaluation of the Preferred Option. The design of the Preferred Option has been developed following detailed consideration of landowner engagement, stakeholder feedback, environmental surveys, transport surveys and ground investigations.
As part of Phase 3 – Design & Environmental Evaluation, the project team will be publishing a Design Update for the project. This Design Update will be available to view on the project website www.shannonaccess.ie from 10am on Friday 10th March 2023.
Design update notices will be published in local newspapers, Clare County Council website, the project website, announced on the local radio station, and shared on social media platforms.
