Westmeath County Council in partnership with Longford County Council is developing a scheme for the improvement of the N55 between Cornamaddy, Athlone, County Westmeath and Ballymahon, County Longford.
The scheme is currently at Route Selection Phase.
Five route options with six potential links were put on display at a public consultation meeting in April 2018. In October 2018, following further assessment, these route options and links were refined down to 6 end to end route options. The extent of the study area was also refined.
The route options have undergone a further detailed appraisal process in order to determine the emerging preferred route option. As a result of this appraisal the Emerging Preferred Route Corridor (EPRC) for the N55 Athlone to Ballymahon scheme will be put on display on
Wednesday, 26th June 2019
from 2pm -8pm
in Tubberclair Community Centre.
The EPRC will be shown as a 150 meter wide corridor. The design team will endeavour to notify all landowners whose properties are within or partially within this corridor, by post, prior to the public display.
Drawings showing the Emerging Preferred Route Corridor will also be available to view on this website , or in the Westmeath National Roads Office Culleen Beg, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath following the Public Consultation Meeting as outlined above. The WNRO staff continue to be available to the public to respond to any issues or queries they may have regarding the scheme.
