Tipperary County Council is progressing the development of the N24 Cahir to Limerick Junction Project in partnership with Limerick City & County Council, Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the Department of Transport.
Public Consultation on the Constraints Study for the project has commenced today (27th January 2021) and will run from 27th January 2021 to 17th February 2021.
The purpose of this non-statutory public consultation is to inform the public of the study area for the project, the key constraints identified to date and the programme for advancement of the project. Public consultation forms an important part of advancing the design process towards the development of transport options and allows the involvement of the public in identifying key constraints.
As part of this process, the project team are seeking feedback from the public on the study area and key constraints for the project.
Due to COVID-19, Tipperary County Council is unable to hold a public consultation event in-person within the study area for the project. Instead, an online public consultation platform has been developed on the project website www.n24cahirlimerick.ie containing all the information that would normally be displayed at a formal in-person public consultation. This online public consultation platform provides a virtual public consultation room and interactive maps with the key constraints identified to date and an online feedback form for submission of comments or queries. An online booking facility is available on the public consultation platform where the public and other stakeholders can schedule an online or telephone meeting with a member of the project team during the consultation period.
It is understood that online information cannot be accessed by everyone, and notwithstanding the restrictions COVID-19 present, the project team is keen to engage with people throughout the consultation period. Hardcopies of brochures and feedback forms can be requested, and telephone meetings can also be booked by calling a member of the project team on (061) 951000.
Submissions can be made using the online feedback form available on the project website www.n24cahirlimerick.ie, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by post addressed to N24 Cahir to Limerick Junction Project, Mid West National Road Design Office, Lissanalta House, Dooradoyle Road, Limerick, V94 H5RR up until Wednesday 17th of February 2021.
