The N4 Carrick-on-Shannon to Dromod Project is currently at Phase 2, Option Selection.
The need for an intervention has been established and a set of project objectives developed. A number of Alternatives and Options were developed to address the problems identified.
The Stage 1 Alternatives and Options were assessed for their quantifiable and non-quantifiable impacts under the six criteria of Economy, Safety, Environment, Accessibility & Social Inclusion, Integration and Physical Activity. This resulted in an overall matrix for the alternatives and options whereby they were ranked and compared. Some Alternatives and Options were discounted before moving on to Stage 2.
At Stage 2 Project Appraisal an assessment of the quantifiable and non-quantifiable impacts of these refined Alternatives and Options under the six criteria of Economy, Safety, Environment, Accessibility & Social Inclusion, Integration and Physical Activity was completed. This resulted in an overall matrix for the Alternatives and Options whereby they were ranked and compared. The outcome from this identified the Preferred Transport Solution, a combination of Alternatives and Options which achieve the project objectives.
We are now at Public Display No. 3, a display of the Preferred Transport Solution.
