Project Description

Transportation Project for Tullamore Town and Environs for 2011 to 2025. Includes recommendations and preliminary design for junction improvements within the town and on the N52 bypass. The study included the assessment of existing road realignments throughout the study area. Preliminary design recommendations include new road links, cycle facilities, transport hub, public transport interchange, traffic signal design, bus facilities, pedestrian priority areas, improved public realms, traffic calming measures and new river crossings. A Smarter Travel report was produced, as part of the study recommendations. Strategic SATURN modelling was carried out to provide data for the EIS for the M6 Kilbeggan to Tullamore Link Road.

Funding was sought and attained for numerous recommended schemes. Carriageway realignment, and a new cycle route, along the entire length of the Western Relief Road, and several junction upgrades throughout the town, have been successfully implemented.
