The proposed N4 Mullingar to Longford (Roosky) Road Scheme will upgrade 50km of the N4 National Primary Route between the N4 Dromod-Roosky Bypass and the N4 Mullingar Bypass. The scheme will bypass Newtown Forbes, Longford, Edgeworthstown, Rathowen and Ballinalack. It will improve road safety and will reduce travel times along this section of the N4.
The Preferred Route Corridor was announced in June 2010.
Further design of this project was suspended following selection of the Preferred Route Corridor in 2010.
A pre-appraisal exercise is currently in progress in accordance with government requirements. This appraisal process will allow decisions to be made in relation to the route selection work that was carried out previously.
Those intending to undertake a development within the corridor of the Preferred Route in particular where an application for planning approval is required are advised to consult with Westmeath National Roads Design Office.
