Delays to city ring road are ‘completely unacceptable’ — Ó Cuív

Thu, Apr 19, 2018

Fianna Fáil Galway West TD Éamon Ó Cuív.

Delays, which will result in the planning application for the €100 million N6 Galway city ring road project not being submitted until May at the earliest - months later than had been indicated - have been branded as “completely unacceptable”.

This is the view of Fianna Fáil Galway West TD Éamon Ó Cuív, who he has called on both the Government and Transport Infrastructure Ireland to submit plans for the road to An Bord Pleanála without delay. Dep Ó Cuív said he understands the Galway County Council has requested a meeting with An Bord Pleanála but “no date has been agreed”.

The views of the National Parks and Wildlife Service on the proposed development were received by the Galway County Council in January. The report relates to biodiversity and environmental impact assessments undertaken for the project. It is also understood that the “appropriate amendments” to the environmental documents have now been completed and that the changes are being incorporated into the final version of the documentation.
