PUBLIC CONSULTATION No.1 OF 2020 ON THE ROUTE OPTIONS FOR THE PROPOSED N25 WATERFORD TO GLENMORE SCHEME
Kilkenny County Council are working in partnership with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) to develop a road scheme to improve the transport connectivity of the N25 between Waterford and Glenmore.
This project will complete the link between the Waterford City Bypass and the New Ross Bypass, creating cross section consistency and route continuity along 36km of the N25.
Currently the project is at Phase 2 – Option Selection and as part of this process a non-statutory consultation is to be held seeking the public’s feedback to the Route Corridor Options.
In accordance with the current COVID-19 restrictions and advice, all face to face project public consultations and meetings have been postponed until further notice.
Given that the COVID-19 restrictions are continuing, we are seeking the public’s engagement through an on-line consultation accessible through the project website.
This is the first public consultation and the objective is to invite members of the public to comment on the proposals via the web site, by email or by phone.
