Westmeath County Council has appointed ROD-AECOM Alliance to provide design and planning services for the N4 Mullingar to Longford (Roosky) road project.
The scheme will upgrade approximately 50km of the N4 national primary route between the recently completed N4 Dromod/Roosky bypass and the N4 Mullingar bypass. It will bypass Rathowen, Ballinalack, Edgeworthstown, Newtownforbes and Longford Town.
In addition to improving road safety, the scheme, which is located on a Trans‐European Network (TEN‐T) route, will improve regional connectivity to the north west. This is a strategic priority of the National Planning Framework (Project Ireland 2040).
The project has a four-year programme, with ROD-AECOM taking it from feasibility through to statutory consent.
Having recently brought the N5 Westport to Turlough Road and the N5 Ballaghaderreen to Scramoge Road projects through planning, ROD is delighted with the opportunity to deliver another key piece of infrastructure to the west and northwest of the country.
