An update on the proposed design and route of the N24 Cahir towards Oola Transport project has been published this morning – the project is to include a By Pass of Tipperary town.

The latest information is available to view on the project website www.n24cahirlimerick.ie.

The Preferred Option Corridor has been narrowed to a 100m wide corridor within which the design for the road component is currently being developed.

This 100m wide corridor lies predominantly within the 300m wide corridor that was published in May 2022 – however there are some changes and all landowners within the project study area could potentially be impacted by the final design.

Provisional junction locations have now been identified on the updated drawings.

Potential active travel routes and demand management measures have also been identified.

The project is expected to deliver reliable journey times on the Waterford – Limerick route having a positive impact on public transport. (Kilkenny county Council are leading an N24 Upgrade from Waterford to Cahir).

A mobility hub is also proposed for Limerick junction to enable a move away from private cars. Within Tipperary town, new streets incorporating active travel infrastructure are proposed.

These streets will help divert traffic away from Main Street.

Property Owners within the 100m wide refined corridor have been informed today by post.

The project team continues to be available for one-to-one in-person meetings with directly affected property owners.

These meetings can be booked through the project website www.n24cahirlimerick.ie or alternatively they can contact the Design team  on (061)951000 or e-mail cahirlimerick@midwestroads.ie  to book a meeting.

In-person meetings are available at Tipperary County Council’s Offices at Rosanna Road, Tipperary town Tuesday to Thursday or alternatively online meetings are available Monday to Thursday.
