STRATEGIC ROAD IMPROVEMENTS UPDATE

A32 Cherrymount Link, Enniskillen The A32 Cherrymount Link Road is one of the major works initiatives currently within the Preparation Pool contained in the RSTN Transport Plan. On completion, it will provide an important strategic link from the A32 Irvinestown Road on the north of the town, to the A4 Dublin Road to the east, via the B80 Tempo Road. It is anticipated that on opening of the proposed new link road, it will attract approximately 9000 vehicles per day.

Preferred Option ­ Cherrymount Link

The Notice of Intention to make a Vesting Order, Notice of Intention to make a Direction Order and Notice of publication of the Environmental Statement were published in the local press in February 2008. This was followed by a consultation period of 6 weeks. On receipt of representations made during the consultation period, it was deemed that the scheme could proceed without the need for a Public Inquiry.

Fermanagh District Council Report 17th November 2008

During the current financial year Roads Service aims to make the Orders and purchase the lands necessary for the construction of the new road. It is hoped that an advanced earthworks contract can then commence on site during 2009/10.

A4 Henry Street, Enniskillen The Regional Strategic Transport Network - Transport Plan included an improvement scheme at Henry Street, Enniskillen which involves the provision of an additional lane on the Henry Street approach to the signals adjacent to Castle Bridge.

The contract for the scheme was awarded to Lagan Construction and the works commenced on site in March 2008. Some difficulties were encountered during construction and this has slightly delayed the scheme completion. It is now planned to carry out the surfacing works in early December after which the benefit of the additional lane will be realised.

Ongoing works at Henry Street, Enniskillen

Fermanagh District Council Report 17th November 2008

A32 TRUNK ROAD BETWEEN ENNISKILLEN AND OMAGH. Roads Service is currently progressing the design of a number of carriageway improvement schemes along the A32, Enniskillen to Omagh route. This improvement package is being funded primarily by Roads Service, but is also benefiting from a significant contribution from the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety as a consequence of the construction of the new acute hospital in Enniskillen.

The improvement package proposes a programme of both `on-line' and `off-line' improvement schemes to modern single carriageway standards with improved overtaking opportunities. The programme includes for the delivery in the short to medium term, of a number of schemes, the following of which are within Fermanagh District Council Area; Drumbulcan (On-line), Sidaire (On-line) and Kilgortnaleague (Off-line).

Subject to available finances, construction of the schemes should commence on a rolling programme across both Omagh and Fermanagh District Council areas in 2009/10. However, due to statutory consultation and lands acquisition process, construction work on the major off-line realignment schemes, such as Kilgortnaleague are unlikely to start prior to 2012/13.

A4 Dualling

Work on A4 at Lisbeg Road

Work on the A4 Dualling and the A4 Annaghilla 2+1 has continued throughout the year. Work to date has largely focused on the stripping of topsoil (to allow for archaeological investigation), fencing and earthworks. In addition a number of the major structures have commenced and are at varying stages of completion. The construction phase is due for completion in Winter 2010.

The completion of the A4 Dualling in particular will improve road safety and reduce journey travel times for people travelling from Enniskillen to Belfast

Enniskillen Southern By-pass The Minister for Regional Development, Mr Conor Murphy announced in September this year that it was Roads Service's intention to commence the route selection process on this scheme before the end of this financial year.
