N70 Glanbehy Bridge – Virtual Display of Route Options
Kerry County Council has developed a number of route options for the N70 Glanbehy Bridge Road Project, with details being announced on Friday 25th June 2021 in an online Webinar, to which members of the public are invited.
Here is the link for the public to register:
This project has been developed in partnership with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) and involves the provision of a realigned section of the N70 National Secondary road in the vicinity of Glenbeigh National School.
The key objective of the scheme is to increase safety for everyday road users including vulnerable road users. The alignment of this section of carriageway will be upgraded to meet current design and safety standards. In addition, specific provision will be made for cyclists and pedestrians along the new section of roadway. Increased ease of access and exit to the N70 from Glenbeigh National School will also be addressed by this scheme. The improvement will allow for safer use of this section of the N70 particularly during the peak tourist months of summer.
Three prospective route options will be outlined during the webinar which will take place on Friday, 25th June 2021 at 16:00pm.
Participants are asked to register in advance on the Kerry County Council website (www.kerrycoco.ie) and questions or comments can also be submitted ahead of the presentation.
While the presentation is taking place online due to limitations on public consultation with the current Covid-19 restrictions, the project team based in the Kerry National Roads Office, The Island Centre, Castleisland, Co. Kerry V92 T0CP ([email protected]) are keen to engage with the public during the development of the scheme. The project team can also be contacted by telephone at 066-7142444.
