Ring Road hearing expected in autumn

Thu, Jul 11, 2024

An oral hearing to discuss the environmental impact of the proposed N6 Galway city ring road should happen as soon as September, according to council officials.

Initial approval for the 18km route was delayed by the High Court in 2023 when it ruled An Bord Pleanála (ABP) had failed to take the State’s latest Climate Action Plan into account.

Any new oral hearing this autumn is expected to have its terms restricted to discuss only data submitted in response to the Further Information request ABP sent to Galway county and city councils earlier this year after the High Court quashed its initial permission.
