The Mall and Bridge Street in Tralee to re-open to traffic on Thursday evening at 6.00pm
The Mall and Bridge Street in Tralee will re-open to traffic on Thursday evening at 6.00pm following the completion of works costing approximately €1.7m as part of the Tralee Active Travel Town Project.
New taxi bye-laws providing for designated taxi ranks have been in place since Tuesday, 12 December, and the part-pedestrianisation of The Mall will come into effect from Thursday evening when the Mall will re-open to traffic.
From Friday morning, The Mall will be closed to through traffic from 10.30am to 6.00pm daily following the decision by Tralee Municipal District councillors to provide for the part-pedestrianisation of the area.
