TRANSPORT Infrastructure Ireland (TII) are undertaking a pavement improvement scheme on the N21 from Mountmahon to the Church in Abbeyfeale.
In response to a question from Independent councillor Jerome Scanlan at this month’s Newcastle West area meeting, council members were told that this project may be completed by the end of the year or by February 2024.
Cllr Scanlan had asked for a detailed update on the programme of works for Abbeyfeale Traffic Management Plan and the timeframe for works.
The Council’s Director of Planning Vincent Murray explained that the Abbeyfeale Public Realm Scheme has an advance works contract on site for demolition of O’Riordan’s pub.
“Tender documents are being finalised for Phase 1 of the scheme, involving 400 metres on Killarney Road from Cellar Bar to doctor’s surgery and upgrading of Grove Crescent car park. The timing of the TII pavement improvement scheme and Phase 1 scheme are being coordinated as it is not permitted for two contractors to work on N21 in close proximity to each other at the same time, due to the level of disruption,” Mr Murray explained.
“Phase 1 will commence upon completion of TII pavement improvement scheme and will take approximately eight months to complete.”
