Sligo County Council’s National Road Design Office is examining the N16 with a view to prioritising sections of the route for targeted upgrading improvements over the coming years. In order to do so, the full length of the N16 corridor in Sligo will be examined to establish the most viable route from a current day perspective. In this regard, Sligo County Council with the support of the National Roads Authority, are undertaking a Constraints Study and Route Selection for the N16.

Having already commenced data collection of identifiable constraints; the Local Authority proposes to hold a Public Consultation process during the summer of 2015. Details the Public Consultations will be widely publicised closer to the dates. It is intended subsequently that a Preferred Route would be established towards the end of 2015/early 2016.

Following the establishment of a Preferred Route, sections of the route (circa 3-4km) can then be prioritised for targeted upgrading improvements over the coming years.
