Statutory Procedures

The statutory procedures governing the construction and improvement of trunk roads are contained in The Roads (Northern Ireland) Order 1993. The Roads (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2004 came into operation on the 18 January 2005 allowing the three strands of the statutory procedures - Environmental Statement, Direction Order and Vesting Order - to be taken forward concurrently.


Note:- Orders were previously published in draft version at Notice of Intention to Make Orders (November 2010). Orders have now been published in final version at Notice of Making Orders (July 2012).

Statutory Procedures require the production of:

ENVIRONMENTAL STATEMENT

The Environmental Statement gives details of the Proposed Scheme, the impacts on the surrounding landform and community and the proposals for mitigation of those impacts. It also contains an outline of the alternatives considered and the reasons for Roads Service’s selection of the Proposed Scheme.

ENVIRONMENTAL STATEMENT ADDENDUM

At the time of publication of the Environmental Statement it was indicated that a review of traffic data was being undertaken in light of a number of modifications to the proposed horizontal and vertical alignment prior to finalising the Proposed Scheme. The Environmental Statement Addendum contains further assessments of the Proposed Scheme relative to air quality and noise and vibration.

SUPPLEMENTARY VESTING ORDER

The Supplementary Vesting Order is being progressed primarily to allow the land take in the original Vesting Order to be amended to accommodate changes requested by landowners during the Public Inquiry process.  The alternative land in the Supplementary Vesting Order allows many of the changes requested at the Public Inquiry to be implemented and effectively moves the land to be vested to areas that are more acceptable to landowners.

DIRECTION ORDER


The Direction Order is a legal process required to modify or create a length of “Trunk Road”. It would normally include the provisions for any of the consequent stopping up of other roads affected by the construction of new road. The Proposed Scheme for the new road is published, together with an illustrative map, in the Notice of Making a Direction Order.
