The £220 million scheme is one of the biggest roads projects ever undertaken in Northern Ireland. It involves the construction of nearly 25.5km of dual carriageway between Dungiven and Drumahoe, including a bypass of Dungiven, with roundabouts connecting the scheme to the existing road network at either end.
The scheme includes:
- four new grade separated junctions
- three new roundabouts
- 22 bridge structures
- over 65 culverts
Roughan & O’Donovan (ROD) is delivering the detailed design for the scheme on behalf of the contractor consortium, Sacyr-Wills-Somague Joint Venture. We are also undertaking site supervision on the scheme.
When complete, it is envisaged that the upgrade will improve road safety, reduce journey times and contribute to the economic development and prosperity of the region.
Construction began in April 2018.
The upgrade is expected to be completed in spring 2022.
