Cllr. Marie Murphy, Cathaoirleach, Tipperary County Council welcomed the process and said
“The announcement for these alternatives and options is an important step in the process of finding the solution to the N24 for Tipperary. It is vitally important that all of the stakeholders engage with this consultation process so that the impact on landowners is minimised and that the best solution is chosen.”
Mr. Joe MacGrath, Chief Executive, Tipperary County Council welcomed the process and said that
“I am delighted that the Project is progressing on program and that we are now advertising the various Alternatives and Options to the Public for their feedback. This is an extremely important stage in the selection process which we hope leads to a Preferred Transport Solution being chosen in Quarter 1 2022.”
