An allocation of 1,463,000 euro has been made in the 2011 budget to the controversial N56 Mountcharles to Inver roads scheme it was revealed at last week’s meeting of the Donegal Electoral Area.
The proposed project involves the design and construction of approximately 5km of new National secondary road from the end of the recently completed Mountcharles Bypass to tie-in with the existing pavement at Inver Bridge.
Three advance works contracts are currently underway, a topographical survey, a pavement condition survey and a Ground Penetrating Radar survey.
Further advance works contracts are expected to commence in September/October, including a supplemental ground investigation contract, an asbestos survey, a landscape contract and a demolition contract.
Land negotiations are ongoing on actively progressing land acquisitions. Contract documentation is being prepared and it is anticipated that tender documents will be completed by the end of 2011.
