On Friday the 18th of June the Joe Bonner Link Road was officially opened.
The Joe Bonner Link Road provides a connection between the Neil T Blaney Road and the Port Road.
The project was funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the Designated Urban Centre Grant Scheme (DUCGS) and Donegal County Council. The ERDF fund is administered by the Northern & Western Regional Assembly.
The Project is one of the NWRA’s capital flagship projects within urban centres. Under this Scheme a total of €28,000,000 was approved to support seven projects in our region including Letterkenny
The road is 323 metres long providing a new Urban Landscape incorporating footpaths and cycleways with the Junction with the Neil T Blaney Road due to be signalised before the end of the year.
The Road has been constructed across difficult ground conditions and has been future proofed with the provision of foul sewer, watermain, ESB and telecommunications infrastructure in collaboration with Irish Water, ESB and Telecommunication companies. The works were completed to a tight deadline with the project being designed and constructed almost entirely by Donegal County Council staff.
