The Government and I are committed to delivering the Crossmolina flood relief scheme and good progress is being made by the Office of Public Works and Mayo County Council to achieve this.  There have been some recent delays to the programme as a result of the Covid-19 restrictions mainly in relation to additional site investigative and environmental surveys but all involved have worked hard to keep the delays to a minimum.  Survey works have now resumed.

The project team is currently finalising the documentation required for formal Confirmation of the Scheme by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform under the Arterial Drainage Acts 1945 and 1995.  When the remaining survey work has been completed, the results will be incorporated into the final scheme documentation for submission to the Minister.  It is anticipated currently that the scheme will be submitted for Confirmation in Q3 2020.
