Study Area, Constraints and Scheme Options

(12th March 2020)

Meath County Council invites the residents of the local area, members of the public and interested parties to participate in a public consultation on the Constraints Study and Stage 1 Scheme Options.


To facilitate participation in the consultation Meath County Council is holding a public information event at the Pillo Hotel, Ashbourne, on Thursday 12th March 2020 between 4pm and 8pm.


The information event provides an opportunity to have your say on the scheme and to get further information about the N2 Rath Roundabout to Kilmoon Cross scheme.


Disclaimer: Options remain a work in progress and are subject to further change / refinement as the Route Selection process advances.


Meath County Council has commenced the development of a scheme for the improvement of the N2 between Rath Roundabout and Kilmoon Cross. During the design process we will hold a number of three stages of non-statutory public consultation.  These consultations may be a combination of public information events and/or publication of elements of the scheme electronically for comment.


In line with Article 6(3) of the Aarhus Convention, we have prepared a Project Consultation Roadmap, that outlines each stage of non-statutory public consultation, which can be viewed below.


Meath County Council is working in partnership with Fingal County Council and in association with Transport Infrastructure Ireland, to develop a scheme along a section of the N2 between Rath Roundabout and Kilmoon Cross. The scheme name is N2 Rath Roundabout to Kilmoon Cross. 


This scheme is referenced in a number of policy documents including the National Planning Framework (Ireland 2040), the National Development Plan (2018-2027) and the National Transport Authority’s Transport Strategy for the Greater Dublin Area. The scheme is located immediately north of Ashbourne and forms part of the N2 National Primary route which links Dublin to Derry. The proposed project Study Area traverses County Meath and County Dublin.


The N2 between Rath Roundabout and Kilmoon Cross currently has a substandard alignment and safety is compromised due to a number of at-grade junctions and private accesses along the existing road. This section of the N2 experiences a number of existing traffic problems including major delays and long tailbacks from the signalised junction at Primatestown in the morning and evening peak periods. This scheme intends to improve journey times, journey time reliability and to reduce stop-start traffic on the N2 corridor. The scheme also intends to address the environmental and safety impacts associated with these traffic problems.
