Killaloe Bypass, Shannon Bridge Crossing & R494 Improvement Scheme

This project on the Co. Tipperary – Co. Clare border will provide a western bypass of Killaloe, a new bridge crossing of the River Shannon and an upgrade of the existing R494 regional road from Ballina to the N7 at Birdhill. The entire scheme is approximately 6.2km and will cross the River Shannon approximately 1km to the south of the existing Killaloe Bridge and will cross the Kilmastulla River (a tributary of the River Shannon and part of the Lower River Shannon SAC) on the R494.

Flynn Furney has joined SISK as the on-site ecologist, undertaking responsibilities that encompass pre-construction surveys, the preparation and implementation of the Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP), and providing ongoing ecological guidance as needed, including overseeing the translocation of Smooth Newt (Lissotriton vulgaris).
