Tipperary County Council is pleased to announce that Glas Civil Engineering Ltd. have been awarded the contract for a road widening and pavement strengthening scheme on the R498 Nenagh to Thurles road at Knockalton, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. The contract was signed on 27th November 2018 at Tipperary County Council, Civic Offices, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary.

The scheme commences just south of junction 25 with the M7, running for approximately 1.4km in the Thurles direction. The works will improve this section of road in terms of load carrying capacity, driveability, safety, drainage and journey time. The total project cost is approximately €1.26 million.

Works are due to commence at the end of November 2018 and will continue for a period of approximately 6 months. The road widening scheme involves:
• re-construction and widening of approximately 1.4km of roadway
• undergrounding of overhead telecom services
• alteration of ESB services
• drainage works

Cllr. Mattie Ryan, Cathaoirleach for Tipperary County Council and Cathaoirleach of Nenagh Municipal District said, “I welcome the news of the commencement of the R498 Road Widening Scheme at Knockalton. This is a narrow section of the R498 where heavy goods vehicles have to stop in order to pass one another. The widening of this road will significantly improve safety for all road users. I would like to wish the contractors well, and ask that anyone commuting to or from this area be mindful of the disruption during the course of the project which the contractor and Council will aim to minimise.”

Joe MacGrath, Chief Executive, Tipperary County Council said, “The Council is investing its own funding into this project in order to improve road safety and journey time on this strategic route. This project will bring improved infrastructure on the Nenagh to Thurles road. The Council is delighted that a contractor has been appointed to complete these works. These works will bring both social and economic benefits to the area. I would like to express my thanks to all road users and the local community in the Knockalton and Thurles Road area for your co-operation during these works.”

The N24 Davitt Street Road Improvement Contract was signed on the 5th November 2018.

Following on from the recent upgrading of the watermains on Davitt St and Church St in 2018, this new project will bring more enhancements to the area with just under 1km of construction to take place on Davitt Street which will include:

  • New road surfacing;
  • New footpaths;
  • Traffic calming and designated parking;
  • Additional surface water drainage.
  • New road lining, signage & minor landscaping;
  • Renewed paving, footpaths and steps surrounding the Church Well, Emmet St.

The traffic calming measures improve safety for pedestrians and motorists whilst still ensuring the flow of vehicles through the town. The new road surface will improve drivability for all road users, whilst wider footpaths will allow greater mobility. Whilst a small number of existing parking spaces will be removed, every effort has been made to minimise the reduction through the planning process and public consultation to maintain as much parking as possible for residents.

Latest Project Progress as follows:

  • Contract was signed with the Contractor on 5th November 2018;
  • Construction works to commence in January 2019 and continue for up to 8 months;
  • Works will be carried out in sections at a time to minimise disruption to parking;
  • Tipperary County Council appreciates the co-operation and patience of the residents and business owners during these necessary construction works.

Further notifications will be issued as the works advance.

Notice of Transboundary Environmental Public Consultation
Planning Application for proposed Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Plant, Anglesey, North Wales, United Kingdom

In accordance with the provisions of the 1991 United Nations Convention on environmental impact in a transboundary context (the Espoo Convention) and the EU Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment (the EIA Directive), the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government has received notice from the UK’s Planning Inspectorate (PINS) in relation to the development consent application (planning application) by Horizon Nuclear Power for the proposed Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Plant, in Anglesey, North Wales, United Kingdom. The proposed development principally comprises a proposed new nuclear electricity generating station on the north coast of Anglesey, North Wales with a projected electrical output of approximately 3.1 gigwatts. The proposed development would also include permanent and temporary works in the marine environment; off-site power station facilities, including a control centre, laboratory and emergency equipment garage; and associated off-site development comprising a worker accommodation campus, temporary park and ride facility, construction logistics centre and highway improvements.

The proposed development is subject to an environmental impact assessment procedure and the UK’s PINS has identified that the proposed development has potential transboundary effects on the environment in Ireland. Accordingly, the UK’s PINS has invited Ireland to undertake a transboundary consultation in respect of environmental information relating to the proposed development. The UK’s PINS is currently examining the development consent application for the proposed development. The UK’s PINS will submit a report on the application, including a recommendation to grant or refuse development consent, to the UK’s Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, who will make the decision on whether to grant or refuse development consent.

A member of the public may make a written submission or observations in relation to the potential transboundary environmental effects of the project, by sending them to his or her local planning authority, to be received by close of business on Friday 25 January 2019 at the latest. Submissions or observations should not be made to the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.

Contact details for each planning authority are set out in the public consultation notice, which is available to view in the public consultation section of the website of the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government at www.housing.gov.ie , together with the correspondence from the UK’s PINS, digital copies of extracts from the applicant’s Environmental Statement; associated documents and links provided by the UK’s PINS to the full Environmental Statement and all other documentation relating to the development consent application for the proposed development.

The public consultation notice is also available to view in the office of the Planning Section of each planning authority nationwide during office hours together with a printed copy of the correspondence from the UK’s PINS inviting Ireland to undertake a transboundary consultation under the Espoo Convention and the EIA Directive; extracts from the applicant’s Environmental Statement and associated documents that appear to be most relevant for the
purpose of the consultation. A copy of these documents is available for inspection, or purchase at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy, during office hours at the office of each planning authority nationwide.

All documentation related to the development consent application for the proposed development, including additional or amending documentation accepted at the discretion of the UK’s PINS, is also available to view on the website of the UK’s PINs, including any additional information accepted by the UK’s PINS at:

In the interests of transparency, it should be noted that, following consultation with the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, each planning authority will forward to the UK’s PINS all submissions or observations it receives through this public consultation, and may also forward a summary of the submissions or observations. Submissions or observations received, or a summary of same, may be published on the website of the planning authority concerned or on a website of the UK’s PINS.
