TIIís Project Management Guidelines
(2010) and TIIís Project Appraisal Guidelines (2016) outline a framework for the phased approach to the
appraisal, development, management and delivery of a major national road scheme in Ireland.The guidelines are structured so as to ensure consistency in this approach throughout the entire national road network and can be viewed at the following links:
In February 2017, Meath County Council appointed RPS Consulting Engineers to start afresh in the progression of the appraisal of traffic management alternatives and with the development of route options for a bypass of Slane village through Phases 1, 2, 3 and 4 of TII's Project Management Guidelines (2010) and TII's Project Appraisal Guidelines (2016)
The project currently at Phase 2 Ė Route Selection has reviewed previous work carried out on the scheme and concluded that:
Taking the foregoing into account, it is concluded that the scheme is a worthwhile and cost effective project to progress.
- The need for the scheme is still there.
- A bypass of Slane village remains feasible.
- Consideration of scheme options, alongside appraisal of a full range of traffic management alternatives, is likely to lead to a fully-justified and worthwhile scheme, designed in accordance with applicable design standards to achieve appropriate levels of service.
