The project is a high-quality road improvement and Active Travel scheme on the N19 National Primary Road between Drumgeely Roundabout and Knockbeagh Point Roundabout on approach to Shannon International Airport in County Clare.

The proposed scheme is approximately 2.3 kilometres in length and comprises primarily of single carriageway cross section. The scheme interfaces at one end with the remaining section of the N19 which links to the M18 motorway and at the other end with Shannon International Airport and the Shannon Free Zone Business Park.

Bus lanes are proposed to be provided along the full length of the scheme from Drumgeely Roundabout and Knockbeagh Point Roundabout and also along Drumgeely Road and SFZW Access Road. Six new bus bays are proposed with bus shelters together with additional footpath links to the proposed segregated footpath/cycleway.
