Consultation description


The Department has now updated the ES 2016 with an Environmental Statement Addendum (ESA 2019) and accompanying Non-Technical Summary (NTS Rev’B). The ESA 2019 should be read in conjunction with the ES 2016 as it provides additional information to update that document.

The general effect of the project will be to construct 85 kilometres of new trunk road from just south of Londonderry at New Buildings, passing through Strabane and close to Newtownstewart, Omagh, Ballygawley and Aughnacloy.
