January 2023

Publication of further drawings

Views are invited from the public on A5 Supplementary Environmental Information published during this week by the Department for Infrastructure. 

The Department published and consulted on a new Environmental Statement Addendum (ESA 2022) and associated documentation on the A5 Western Transport Corridor dual carriageway scheme in March 2022. 

In November 2022 the Department made available a number of reports as supplementary information to the ESA 2022 with a consultation that concluded on 23 December 2022. Following a request by the Planning Appeals Commission the Department is now making available a report containing layout drawings covering the entire length of the scheme together with longitudinal profiles and cross sections. An updated Non-Technical Summary has also been prepared and available (NTS Revision D).

The Department encourages anyone with an interest in this significant flagship project to make their views known during this consultation period which opens on Wednesday 18 January 2023. Members of the public can submit their views by letter to the Divisional Roads Manager, DFI Roads - Western Division, County Hall, Drumragh Avenue, Omagh BT79 7AF, or email DFIRoads.Western@infrastructure-ni.gov.uk

All previous representations about the project in response to the consultations of March and November 2022 will be taken into account by the Department and it is not necessary to re-submit them. Any additional representations by way of supplement or amendment must however be submitted to the Department on or before the closing date of this consultation process of 3 March 2023.
