Plans to improve traffic flow in Letterkenny have gone out to public consultation.
In advance of the TEN‐T scheme being completed and open by 2027, Donegal County Council has identified a need to provide immediate relief to traffic congestion along the N56 corridor in Letterkenny.
It’s proposed that a traffic management system be provided at the Polestar roundabout and the adjacent junctions of the Ballyraine roundabout, Creamery Roundabout, LYIT Junction and the Joe Bonnar Junction on the road network comprising of sections of the Donegal Town - Letterkenny Road, Letterkenny - Ramelton Road, Kilmacrennan Road, Neil T Blaney Road and the Letterkenny - Lifford Road.
It’s proposed that the existing Ballyraine Roundabout be replaced with a signal-controlled junction.
The project will also include; partial road and footway construction, new road markings, signage, drainage works, landscaping and accommodation works.
