Donegal County Council has confirmed an extension to the deadline for comments on a number of key road proposals.
There's been significant discussion on Highland Radio and elsewhere about the proposed route options, particularly in relation to the Twin Towns By-pass and the Letterkenny to Manorcunningham Road, with calls for more debate before any decisions are made.
In a statement this morning, the council says due to the level of interest and requests for extension of time, the closing date for submissions has been pushed back to Thursday May 31st.
However, the council says this is not a restricted deadline, and feedback will be welcomed and accepted at any stage of the project progression.
