N17 N18 Gort to Tuam PPP Scheme

The N18 Oranmore to Gort Scheme has been combined with the M17 Galway to Tuam Scheme and the N17 Tuam Bypass scheme into one large scheme 57 kilometres long, known as the N17 N18 Gort Tuam PPP scheme. This scheme is scheduled to start construction in the second half of 2013.

In 2012 INIS Environmental Consultants Ltd were contracted to carry out full EIAs for quarries on this alignment and submit the planning applications for these quarries to Galway County Council to ensure that rock supplies for this major infrastructure project are available at strategic areas on the alignment in time for initiation of the contract. This work necessitates INIS consultants designing the most advantageous method of extraction while protecting the local environment. INIS has extensive expertise in the area of Quarry and Mining projects.
