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. 


Routes 2 and 3 are currently within the planning process (the Donegal section of route 3 - Lifford - was approved in January 2019, while the Muff section of route 2 was approved by Donegal County Council on 22 July 2019). The preferred corridor for route 1, Derry-Buncrana, was published in July 2019 and details can be accessed on the relevant page below.


Construction has now begun on route 3, Lifford to Strabane. Both Donegal County Council and Derry City & Strabane District Council have appointed Fox Construction to deliver the route linking the two border towns. Subject to Covid-19 restrictions, the contractor is on schedule to complete the work during Q2, 2021.


In Donegal, the tender for route 2, Muff, is on schedule to be published in April 2021. It is the Council's intention to appoint a contractor by summer with work commencing at the end of Q2, 2021.


Preferred routes


Route 1, Derry to Buncrana (with spur to Newtowncunningham): Route 1 

Route 2: Derry to Muff: Route 2

Route 3: Lifford to Strabane: Route 3
