RPO 167

National Road Projects It is an objective for the provision of National Road Projects to be delivered during the period up to 2027 to achieve NSO: Enhanced Regional Accessibility subject to the required appraisal, planning and environmental assessment processes are supported. Under this RPO, where works to any part of the strategic road network are supported, the potential for improved sustainable transport shall be considered. The potential for nature-based design solutions for mitigation design shall be considered. Part (A) Projects Identified Under the NDP Including Pre-Appraisal Stages The following National Road Related Schemes and Projects under Project Ireland 2040 National Development Plan for National Roads are supported:

Part (B) Other Projects Under this RPO, for identified strategic road network improvements not included in the current NDP for the period 2018-2027, RSES seeks that: • Government’s current priorities remain in accordance with National Development Plan 2018- 2027 priorities only; • Improvements to national roads identified at a regional and local level will be done in consultation with and subject to agreement with TII in accordance with current project appraisal, environment and planning procedures;

DTTS/TII may not be responsible for the funding of any such schemes or improvements.

The provision of the following projects are also supported as strategic regional priorities to achieve NSO Enhanced Regional Accessibility subject to the recommendations of the three MASPs, the preparation of associated Metropolitan Area Transport Strategies and the preparation of Local Transport Plans for key settlements and other urban centres where applicable. These measures are also subject to robust feasibility studies and site/route selection to reduce impacts on the environment and required appraisal, planning and environmental processes: • Cork Northern Ring Road (CNRR) is a complementary scheme to the N/M20 Cork to Limerick Road Improvement Scheme, identified in the NDP. It has been assessed as part of the Cork Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy (CMATS). It is expected that the CNRR project will be planned for implementation during the latter period of the CMATS. The finalisation of a route corridor and its protection from development intrusion is an objective of CMATS to allow for changing circumstances including potentially an earlier project delivery requirement; • N27 Cork-Cork International Airport • N40 Junction improvements at Curraheen for CSIP • Limerick Southside Accessibility Project M20/M7 Interchange • Limerick Northern Distributor Route (LNDR) connect N18 to M7 • Upgrade and improve the N24 Limerick to Waterford Corridor • New interchange M18 Quin Road Ennis • Improvements N71, N72, N73, N77, N78 Corridors • Improvements to N30 (including Clonroche By Pass) • Upgrade N80 Enniscorthy to Carlow and Midlands • Upgrade and improve N29-access to Port of Waterford Belview • Upgrade N62 Horse and Jockey to Thurles, to connect with M7 and M8 • N67/N85 Blakes Corner Ennistimon • N85 Kilnamona Road Improvement Scheme
