Dual Carriageway : 52 km

The Atlantic corridor will see the creation of a north-south axis covering the west coast of Ireland and taking in all the regional cities - Sligo, Galway, Limerick and Cork - upgraded to a minimum 2+2 dual carriageway standard. However, in the 2010 spending review, the part starting about 25 km north of Sligo was cancelled. This is acceptable in the short term, since Ballyshannon and Bundoran were bypassed in 2006 and Donegal town has had a bypass for a long time.

However, since County Donegal is a peripheral region, this is not acceptable in the long term. An online upgrade of the Ballyshannon and Bundoran bypass, and a new build for the rest, will be required. This will complete the connection of Donegal's road network to the rest of the Republic's.

Please give your opinion on this road proposal. Rate it out of 10, and whether you think the standard (road width) is appropriate.
