As outlined in TII’s Project Management Guidelines (PE-PMG-02047, July 2022) the purpose of Phase 1 is to develop and investigate in further detail the feasibility of the project and to implement the project management structure.
An initial task within Phase 1 was to identify a suitable study area for the examination of preliminary route options, in accordance with the Five S criteria outlined in the Strategy for the Future Development of National and Regional Greenways, published by the Department of Tourism, Transport and Sport in July 2018.
During Phase 1 it was necessary to establish whether there is a sufficient case for considering a Project in more depth, that is, progression to Phase 2. This included the examination of a list of preliminary route options against the project objectives to ascertain whether there are feasible options that can be progressed in further detail in Phase 2.
This examination concluded that there are feasible options within the Study Area which will be progressed in further detail in Phase 2.
