N24 Waterford to Cahir Project - Public Consultation No.2 – Alternatives and Options
A non-statutory public consultation will be held on the N24 Waterford to Cahir project from 3 May 2022 to 20 May 2022. Information will be available in-person at four public consultation events as well as on in an online consultation room on the project website www.n24waterford2cahir.ie The purpose of this non-statutory public consultation is to inform the public of the broad range of potential transport solutions developed that have the potential to solve the issues identified to date and deliver on the project objectives. Potential solutions include alternative transport solutions such as bus, rail and active travel modes, and different road based options. These solutions will be subject to a comparative assessment of their potential impacts, and their relative success in achieving the project objectives to determine the preferred solution for the project.
Public consultation forms an important part of advancing the development of an appropriate solution for the project. As part of this process, the project team are seeking feedback from the public on the potential transport solutions that have been developed.
