Infrastructure for The Wild Atlantic Way as it 'Gets Out There'

The West is in for a dramatic move with the go ahead of the long awaited continuation of motorway i.e. N17/N18 Gort to Tuam scheme. This is an means to an end for the proposed 'Atlantic Corridor' which will eventually stretch from as far away as Wexford to the far reaches of Letterkenny.

The projects are creating tens of hundreds of jobs if not thousands since its inception. The money as much as 550 million euro, for this current section of motorway, will come from PPPs and the sale of State assets, the National Pensions Reserve Fund and the European Investment Bank.

It is estimated that this corridor section (57km)along the west coast will take 3 years starting by year end. The contract was awarded to Direct Route which is a group of contractors including Lagan, Roadbridge and Sisk. As part of their strategy it is believed the continued investment will improve the quality and amenity of the urban fabric, including the branding of cities and towns along the coastline and joint initiatives in tourism and marketing.
