N55 Athlone to Ballymahon - Scheme Update

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 of this year. Following further assessment, these route options and links have been refined down to 6 end to end route options. The extent of the study area has also been refined.

These route options will now undergo further detailed appraisal in order to select the preferred route option. The announcement of the preferred route is expected in early 2019.

Updated drawings are now available to view on our website or in the Westmeath National Roads Office, Culleen Beg, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. The WNRO staff continue to be available to the public to respond to any issues or queries they may have regarding the scheme.
