Eirgrid has extended the public consultation on the North Connacht 110 KV power line project until the 11th December.
Initially, submissions had to be received by next Monday 16th November, but that date has now been pushed out to next month to allow more people in Mayo, Sligo and Roscommon to engage with the company in relation to their plans.
Eirgird is currently looking at possible routes for the 110 KV line within a study area that runs from Ballina down to Ballaghadereen and from Foxford across to Tubbercurry.
Mayo Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary says welcomed confirmation from Eirgrid that people will now have almost an extra month to make their submissions..
Eirgrid is running telephone clinics for people to give their feedback on the plans, and additional webinars will be held on the 1st, 3rd and 7th December.
