Route 3 Report


Route 3, Strabane-Derry-Constraints and Route Options Report stage 1-2


The Scheme Assessment and Design Options Report describes the combined Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the Design Option Appraisal Process for the proposed Strabane to Lifford Route of North West Greenway Network (NWGN) Scheme. It sets out the project background and the European, national and local policy guidelines which frame the scheme and the development of Greenway Schemes. The report identifies a Study Area and describes the Constraints, Opportunities and Areas of Interest within the Study Area that will inform the consideration of design options. One viable Design Option from, and around Strabane to the border at Lifford has been identified. One preferred Design Option has been identified from the border at Lifford to Murlog Church, with a provision being made to both sides of the N14 for a portion of its length. The report describes these Routes and explains the design options considered.


As no viable alternative routes have been identified, this report combines the Stage 2 Preferred Route Selection.
