Donegal County Council is inviting contractors to tender for Letterkenny’s multi-million Four Lane project.
The major project has been approved by the TII and was posted to E-Tenders on 4th September.
The council is seeking to award the contract in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The major project was due to begin in Autumn 2020, but progress was brought to a halt due to Covid-19.
The Four Lane project will see safety improvements work carried out on a 1.4Km stretch of road between the Dry Arch and Polestar roundabouts. The estimated cost for this scheme is €5 million, if much of the work will take place at night to minimise disruption.
Tender return is currently set for 6th October 2020.
A statement from the council said: “This is a welcome investment to improve the current sole lifeline route into Letterkenny and key transport corridor for all travel modes. The scheme will provide significant safety improvement while also maintaining and improving function and capacity.
“The scheme will significantly improve active travel options with significant upgrade to cycle and pedestrian facilities. It is expected that these improvements will enable modal shift options to further expand and develop.”Tags:
