The Donegal public has been urged to have their say on the proposed footpath and cycleway project on Carrigart to Downings regional road.
It is planned to extend along the western margin of the R248, from its beginning near Carrigart to its junction with a minor road close to the Rosepenna Hotel and Golf Resort in Downings. This represents a total distance of approximately 2.6km.
For much of its length, the combined footpath/cycleway is proposed to be 3m in width and will occupy the existing roadside verge.
At the southern end of the site, the verge is replaced by a strip of hardstand and in this location, it is proposed to create a shared pathway which is approximately 2m in width so as to fit within this area.
The works will involve traffic management, excavation, kerb laying, concrete works, backfilling and any associated accommodation works.
Submission and observations with respect to the proposed development dealing with:
- The implications of the proposed development for proper planning and sustainable development in the area concerned,
- The likely effects on the environment of the proposed development,
- The likely significant effects of the proposed development on a European site, if carried out.
can be made free of charge to the board at An Bord Pleanala, 64 Marlborough Street, Dublin 1 before 4:30pm on the 15th November 2019.
