N72 Killorglin-Anglont – Webinar on preliminary design
Kerry County Council has developed a design for the proposed N72 Killorglin-Anglont Road Improvement Scheme, details of which were announced on a public webinar on Friday, 19 February. Members of the public were invited to register for the online presentation at which details of the 2.6km scheme were outlined by the project team. The project comprises the rehabilitation and upgrading of the existing road surface and the provision of a new three-metre wide shared cycle and pedestrian facility on the north side of the road.
The N72 road is an important strategic access route between Killorglin and Killarney and has been identified in submissions to the National Development Plan by Kerry County Council as critical to the development of the Kerry Hub Knowledge Triangle and the improvement of local infrastructure.
The proposals, which are being developed in conjunction with TII, will improve safety for road users by upgrading both the road surface and sightlines and will promote Active Travel by encouraging a shift to greater use of sustainable modes of transport such as walking and cycling.
The preferred route option was outlined during the webinar which took take place on Friday, 19th February at 4.00pm.
