A preferred route for the Knock to Collooney road project is expected to be announced this month, writes Keith Bourke.

Mayo County Council’s head of roads, Paul Dolan, delivered a report to members of the Roads and Transportation Strategic Policy Committee on projects taking place in the county.

The Knock to Collooney project is being managed by Sligo County Council.

A draft emerging preferred corridor and draft option selection report underwent a review process in July. Actions arising from this review are currently being established with a preferred route announcement imminent.

The N5 Turlough to Westport road is due to open next year while the formal opening of the N26 Ballina to Swinford road at Cloongullane takes place next month.

A consultant has been appointed for phase two of the Ballina bypass with public consultation getting underway on September 29 in relation to possible route options. A preferred route is expected to be determined by the end of this year or early 2023.

A Strategic Assessment Report on the N26 Mountfalcon to Foxford road project has been approved by Transport Infrastructure Ireland. Mayo County Council is in the process of appointing consultants.

Meanwhile, a Strategic Assessment Report for the Foxford bypass has been submitted to Transport Infrastructure Ireland.

The Part 8 planning permission for the Breaffy Active Travel Safety Scheme, which has been keenly anticipated in the area, is expected to be published this week.
