A Project Steering Group comprising representatives of Mayo County Council and the Office of Public Works is overseeing the implementation of the Ballina flood relief project.  A tender competition for the procurement of engineering design consultants for the project is underway and it is anticipated that the consultants will be appointed in January 2020.  The consultants will be responsible for preparing a programme for the implementation of the flood relief scheme and for assessing all viable options to address the flood risk in the town.
