Donegal County Council hereby gives notice of its intention to carry out the development of improved pedestrian facilities along a section of the L-1252-2 Coopers Road in the Letterkenny-Milford Municipal District.

The new footway linkage seeks to provide a safe, high quality mobility infrastructure that is accessible, age friendly and maximises comfort to people of all ages and abilities. This will largely involve traffic calming measures from introducing dedicated pedestrian crossings with raised tables were appropriate, providing a more structured uniform carriageway throughout the extents of the scheme and providing appropriate pathways encouraging active travel as the preferred transport option to Milford Town Centre, local schools and amenities.
