Galway County Council is developing a design for an Inner Relief Road for Baile Chláir.

The project is aimed at removing through traffic from the village and improving the environment for residents and visitors in the village centre.

The project will include the construction of a new bridge over the River Clare. A single carriageway road is planned.

A number of possible routes for the Inner Relief Road have been developed. A preferred route corridor has not been identified at this stage.

Galway County Council now invites interested parties to comment on any of these routes or any other aspects of the project. Comments may be made by emailing [email protected].

The Route Options are now being assessed under various criteria in order to select a Preferred Route. These criteria include:

  • Traffic Collection
  • Environmental Impact
  • Economic Benefits
  • Safety
  • Archaeological Impact
  • Human Impact
  • Input from Public and other interested parties

It is hoped that a preferred route will be selected later in the year. A further public consultation will be held at this time to invite further comments on the proposal.

If you are unable to attend the public consultation, project details may be viewed during normal office hours at the locations below from Wednesday 15th June 2011.
