NOTICE PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 81, PART 8 OF THE ABOVE REGULATIONS, RELATING TO A PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT BY DONEGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

 

Donegal County Council hereby gives notice of its intention to carry out the development of improved pedestrian facilities along a section of the L-2454-1 Guesthouse End, Raphoe in the Lifford-Stranorlar Municipal District.

 

The proposed footway, measuring approximately 170m in length, will be located in the townland of Raphoe Townparks and will introduce both new and improved footpath along the L-2454-1 Guesthouse End to provide the safety improvements to facilitate the appropriate treatments to enable the linkage from the L-2454-1 Raphoe Townparks road to The Diamond, Raphoe. The new footway linkage seeks to provide a safe, high quality mobility infrastructure that is accessible, age friendly and maximises comfort to people of all ages and abilities. This will largely involve traffic calming measures from introducing dedicated pedestrian crossings with raised tables were appropriate, narrowing of the wide carriageway providing a more structured uniform carriageway throughout the extents of the scheme, providing appropriate pathways were possible encouraging active travel as the preferred transport option to Raphoe Town Centre, local schools and amenities.L-2454 Guesthouse End - Raphoe - Active Travel Scheme_Safety Audit Report
