|Donegal County Council - NWGW L2CF - The detailed design of Lifford to Castlefin Greenway
||The proposed Lifford to Castlefin Greenway forms part of the INTERREG VA funded North West Greenway Network Project (www.nwgreenway.com), administered by the Special EU Programmes Body. The proposed lifford to Castlefin Greenway is located adjacent to the existing N15 road development and extends southwest from the Lifford town boundary (current 60kph speed limit sign) to the Castlefin Partnership Initiative (CPI centre) a distance of approximately 7.5km. The proposed works will provide dedicated walking and cycling infrastructure adjacent to and segregated from the N15 highway, facilitating modal shift to the benefit of the environment through carbon offsetting.
Following the route selection process, a developed sketch scheme design was developed in house by Donegal County Council for the route and the project achieved part 8 planning approval at the July 2022 Plenary Council Meeting. The Northwest Greenways' Project Team now require the services of a suitably qualified Consultant Engineer to further develop this preliminary design into a detailed design and full tender package for the project. Thereafter the Consultant shall be required to assist with the Integrated Supply Team (construction contractor) procurement process, provide supervisory and contract administration services during the construction stage and oversee the close out and handover of the project.
