Construction work begins at Malin Head 25.04.17

WORK has begun at Malin Head to improve access and amenities at the key Wild Atlantic Way viewing point.
The works at the northernmost Wild Atlantic Way location, will include road widening; extension to existing car park facilities; construction of a toilet block and provision of services and utilities via the public road.
Donegal County Council earlier this month accepted the tender of Joseph McMenamin & Sons (Stranorlar Ltd) to carry out the project following a public procurement process.

It is expected works will be complete and open to the public by early July 2017.
"Donegal County Council wishes to advise the public and visitors to the Malin Head Signature Discovery Point that traffic management will be in place for the duration of the construction phase and that on occasions, access to Banba’s Crown may be restricted, particularly during road surfacing works," the local authority said.
"It is also worth pointing out that due to the limited space available at Banba’s Crown, turning manoeuvres for coaches and other large vehicles may prove difficult during the construction phase.
"(We) wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank the public in advance and in particular the local community for their ongoing support and co-operation." The project is being funded by Failte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority.
