Independent TD Michael Lowry has urged the people of Thurles to engage with the consultation process for the route selection for the N62 Thurles Bypass which will be on display in the Anner today and tomorrow from 2-8pm.
The study has been completed and 5 potential routes have been identified by the National Roads Authority (NRA) as options for the bypass.
The Thurles based deputy said:
This bypass is a key component with my agreement with the current government and it is the biggest infrastructural project that the town will see in generations. I wish to ensure that everyone in the town has their fair say on it as it will have a major bearing on the future development of the town. It is important the people of Thurles and its surrounds take this opportunity to engage with the consultation.
Once the Public display in the Anner has ended, the plans for the suggested route corridors will be put on display in the Library, the Town Hall in Thurles and the County Council offices in Nenagh until Wednesday the 14th of October and the deadline for submissions is the 16th of October.
The Thurles bypass is one of only 2 NRA capital projects in the country, along with the Casltleisland bypass, that has not been started but that has not been frozen.
