Route 1 - Derry to Buncrana

While an emerging preferred route will be published in the new year, an additional consultation event has now been scheduled specifically relating to the potential route linking Inch Island to Fahan. For more details, click on media release‌.

 

Project history

In June 2018, as part of the route selection process, two consultation events were held jointly by Derry City & Strabane District Council and Donegal County Council. On Tuesday 26 June, the first event was held in the Lough Swilly Yacht Club, while the following day - Wednesday 27 June - the general public and landowners within the corridor of interest were also able to view plans in Templemore Sports Complex, Derry.

 

The assessment of the route options has now been completed and the report will be published in February. 

 

Reports

 

Constraints Study and Route Options Report June 2018

 

The function of this report is to give an overview of the background to the project, placing it in the context of European, national and local policy guidelines which frame the scheme and the development of greenway infrastructure. The report identifies a study area and describes the constraints, opportunities and areas of interest within the study area that form the selection of a number of 'route corridor options'. Several assessment criteria are defined, with an explanation of how each route corridor is assessed against the relevant criteria.
