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.

Meath County Council publish CPO notice for Slane Bypass.
19th December 2009

The Council have just published the public notice of its intention to compulsorily purchase land in six townlands covering the proposed route. Over forty landowners are affected in the townlands of Johnstown, Cullen, Fennor, Crewbane, Slane and Cashel. Full detail of the Compulsory Purchase Orders are published in a special supplement in this week's Meath Chronicle.

The Bypass Slane Campaign welcomes this development as it is a major step in the progress towards the application to Bord Pleanála. It is clear that there will be a timeframe for the planning stage of the process. However, when permission is ultimately granted, we hope that An Taoiseach Brian Cowen and the Minister for Transport Noel Dempsey will follow through on their promise to prioritise the Slane Bypass by providing the relatively modest funds that will be required for construction. Given that completion of the bypass is likely to be some years away, the Bypass Slane Campaign will maintain pressure for the continuation of the implementation of effective road safety measures.

Read the full story in the Meath Chronicle.
