The project is currently at Phase 2 Option Selection. The purpose of this phase is to examine feasible alternative options in order to determine a Preferred Option for the Project.
The first non-statutory public consultation on ‘Constraints’ took place between 27 January 2021 to 17 February 2021 and is now complete. The purpose of this consultation was to inform the public of the study area for the project, the key constraints identified to date and the programme for advancement of the project. Public consultation forms an important part of advancing the design process towards the development of transport options and allows the involvement of the public in identifying key constraints. The development of transportation solutions, which could include multiple route corridors is currently underway. It is expected to have potential options identified in late Q2 2021.
