Donegal County Council has appointed Roughan & O’Donovan (ROD) to provide contract administration, construction supervision and handover stage services for the final phase of the N56 Drumbeigh to Inver road project.
The scheme is located approximately 3.5km west of the village of Mountcharles. It includes the construction of 2.46km of Type 1 single carriageway, comprising 7.3m road carriageway with 2.5m hard shoulders and 3m grass verges.
Works include site clearance; fencing; safety barriers; drainage and service ducts; diversion of watermains and other utilities; accommodation works; landscaping and environmental mitigation measures.
The project ties into the recently completed N56 Mountcharles to Drumbeigh Road scheme, for which ROD provided contract administration and site supervision services at the construction stage.
Construction is due to begin in August 2019, with Wills Bros Ltd. as contractor.
The scheme is expected to open to the public in early 2021.
When complete, the road development will improve the level of service and safety for all road users and enhance the accessibility of south west Donegal, Killybegs Port in particular.
