Slane has a medieval bridge and an 18th century
road carrying 21st century articulated traffic…
The only long-term solution to the
ongoing traffic problem in Slane
is the construction of the bypass.

An Bord Pleanála seek further information from Meath County Council in relation to the proposed bypass.

18th May 2010

As we made a submission to An Bord Pleanála on the EIS for the proposed bypass, we recently received a letter from the Bord informing us that they have contacted Meath Council Council seeking further information in relation to the EIS.

There are twelve separate points of clarification requested dealing with, among others, details of the possible route identified to the west of the village, alternative designs for the bridge, projected noise levels from Knowth and other points in the WHS, further detailed work examining visual impact from various points inside and outside the WHS and details of the methodologies used for archaeological surveys carried out for the EIS.

Meath County Council have until 21 June 2010 to submit these clarifications. If the Bord is satisfied with the additional information supplied, it will then be available for inspection and purchase in the same way as the original EIS. Publication will be advertised in the local press.

There was no reference made to the holding of an oral hearing but it is likely that there may be an announcement sometime after 21st June.

A pdf copy of the letter sent by An Bord Pleanála may be viewed HERE.

A report has since appeared in the Irish Times (14th June 2010) which can be accessed HERE.

A podcast interview on the Michael Reade Show on LMFM on the issue can be accessed HERE. It is the last item in the show.
