R263 Fintra Bridge and Road Realignment

Donegal County Council proposes to upgrade the existing R263 in the townland of Fintragh within the Donegal Municipal District. The project proposes the provision of a new road commencing at the roundabout on the Western end of the Killybegs Relief Road and extending approximately 1.4km to the West. The proposed road will provide an improved alignment, cross section and provision for pedestrians and cyclists. The proposals include a new bridge to cross the Fintra River.

The project will include:

  • A new bridge crossing of the Fintra River on the realigned R263.
  • The realignment of approximately 1.4km of road infrastructure and cross-sectional improvements.
  • A new 1.9km pedestrian and cycle route between the Killybegs Relief Road and access to Fintra Beach.
