The preferred route for the N61 Ballymurray to Knockcroghery bypass will be published on the project’s website (www.n61roscommon.ie) next Monday evening (December 14th) at 6 pm.

In an update on Monday evening, the project team said it had completed the appraisal of the six route corridor options and had identified the emerging preferred route corridor. The emerging preferred route will be available online until January 29th 2021.

A statement on the project website read: ‘The current Covid-19 restrictions prohibit the holding of public events or in-person individual meetings, as a result the project website will host an online consultation experience.

‘This online public consultation experience will allow stakeholders and the public to view maps, project information and express their opinion in a safe and accessible environment.

‘Should these restrictions change in the coming weeks, Roscommon County Council will advise of details for in-person meetings by appointment through the project website’.

Those affected by the preferred route or anyone with an interest in the project can contact the project team by booking an online video meeting or telephone meeting via the project website.

Alternatively, you can contact 087-2817589 or email n61bk@n61roscommon.ie.

Bookings for both the online video meetings and telephone meetings can be made from the 15th of December, with the meetings to take place weekdays, during normal working hours, from the 4th to the 29th of January 2021.

Those who cannot access online information, details of the preferred route will be on display for viewing externally at Áras an Chontae, Roscommon from December 14th.
