A2 Ballykelly Bypass - overview

The A2 forms part of the Northern Key Transport Corridor linking the Belfast Metropolitan Area to Londonderry via Coleraine. The existing corridor is a mixture of motorway, dual and single carriageway.

Scheme overview:

The Ballykelly Bypass is one of several schemes that have been identified for the northern corridor in the Regional Strategic Transport Network Transport Plan 2015 (RSTN TP) and is included in the Investment Delivery Plan (IDP) for Roads.  Although construction is not expected to commence until near the end of the Investment Strategy period (2017/2018), initial assessment work was brought forward due to the planned disposal of lands at Shackleton Barracks by the Ministry of Defence.  The assessment will be limited to the selection of a preferred route (end of Stage 2).
