Consultation, Drawings and Maps


In May and June 2018, public consultation events were organised at locations convenient to the proposed route corridors and study areas for Muff to Derry and Derry to Buncrana respectively. All events were widely published across Derry and Donegal and almost 600 people attended. Separately, information events were held in October for route 3, Lifford to Strabane. As a result of these events and the consultation reports that have been produced, the emerging routes for each route have now been finalised. 


Route 2, Derry to Muff: planning was secured on 22 July 2019 for the Donegal section. In Derry, planning was secured on 12 April 2021. Construction in Muff will commence in 2021 and in Derry it is due to commence, subject to a tender process, during 2022.


Route 3, Lifford to Strabane: the Donegal section of route 3 - Lifford - was approved in January 2019, while approval was granted for Lifford in January 2020. Work commenced in 2020 and is almost complete. While the route is largely active now, it will be officially launched in September 2021.


Route 1, Buncrana to Derry: the preferred corridor for route 1, Derry-Buncrana, was published in July 2019 and details can be accessed on the relevant page below. The planning application for the Derry section was submitted in June 2020. Donegal will follow during 2021.
