Team Overseeing Upgrade Of N11 Hope Glen Of The Downs Protests Can Be Avoided

The team responsible for overseeing the upgrade of the N11 say they hope protests similar to those seen 25 years ago at the Glen of the Downs can be avoided.

Quoted in Herald, Christopher Bradish liaison officer with project managers Arup, says the history of the project is well understood.

He believes that going forward, transparency around the decision making process is crucial, as well as informing the public of the benefits and impacts of those decisions.

One of the two upgrade options for the N11, would potentially see a further encroachment on the Glen of the Downs, by widening the current road or tunnelling beneath it.

An important transport link between Dublin and Rosslare, the N11 is expected to see an increase in traffic volumes after Brexit.
