Donegal County Council proposes to widen and improve the alignment of the R263 & L-1195 roads between the Towns of Kilcar & Carrick. The priority of the junction between the R263 & L-1195 will also change based on traffic count validation. Mainline improvements will commence approximately 300m south of the L-1195 junction with the R263 along the L-1195. Side road improvements of the R263 will commence approximately 120m south of the existing R263 junction with the L-1195 along the R263 leading to Kilcar village.

The project will be carried out in accordance with the drawings associated with this application and will include: 

  • The change of priority of the junction between the R263 & L1195.
  • The provision of a replacement bridge structure is proposed. This structure will be subject to a separate Part 8 project. Cashlins Bridge is a protected structure and as such cannot be widened or altered,
  • Resurfacing will also take place at the tie-ins of all terminal points of the scheme.
  • Improved surface water drainage systems will be provided with new gullies; carrier drains or filters drains installed where appropriate.
  • New road lining will be provided for the entire length and some amendments to traffic signs will be provided throughout the scheme in accordance with the Dept of Transport Traffic Signs Manual.
