Galway Wind Park comprises of four separately consented wind farms, Lettercraffroe, Uggool, Cloosh and Seecon. This development is the modifications to existing roads and tracks for the Galway Wind Park turbine delivery route.

Modifications will include:

  • Widening of N59 junction to allow adequate space for the turbine delivery vehicles to turn onto the Doon Road;
  • Widening, strengthening, installation of passing bays, local regrading to suitable gradients and local widening of local and forestry roads for the passage of oversized turbine delivery vehicles.

These improvement works are required for the following reasons:

  • To facilitate the delivery of large oversized trucks carrying turbine elements.
  • To improve the strength of the existing road to carry the construction vehicles.
  • To improve the safety of the roads
  • To benefit the local residents in the short, medium and longer terms.
