A new cycle path in Navan from Martha’s Bridge to Circular road is being proposed by Meath County Council alongside other construction works along the route.
Other additions planned along the route include, new footpaths, controlled crossing points, segregated cycling facilities, and upgrades of existing signalised junctions.
Changes will be made for drivers along the road as well with the removal of an existing turn to Riverside filling station.
Meath County Council said there is no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment from the construction and development of these projects. A screening determination to see if this development will greatly affect the environment can be applied to An Bord Pleanála. There will also be an open space provided which will include additional landscaping such as trees and shrubbery.
Roadways and verges will be excavated to construct service ducts, road crossings, and other additions that are being proposed in the project plan. Civil works such as drainage, concreting, and tree feeling will also be included along with these construction works.
The proposed works above will take place in the Townlands of Limekilnhill, Dillonsland, Townparks & Balreask Old in Navan, Co. Meath.
The proposed works will be carried out within existing roadway boundaries, with some minor relocation/setting back of some private boundaries.
