Tralee Bypass gets planning nod

24 Sep

There’s been a major boost for plans to build a ring road to alleviate Tralee’s traffic congestion. An Bord Pleanala has given the go ahead to carry out the Compulsory Purchase Order and Environmental Impact Statement needed to allow work start. However, this is dependent on funding being approved and released by the National Roads Authority. A new ring road is badly needed in Tralee where long traffic tailbacks are a daily occurrence.

It’s planned to build an 8 km dual carriageway ring road around the eastern side of the town and a five and a half kilometre single carriageway joining the ring road to the N22 Killarney road at Baleagrelock.

Kerry County Council says it’s predicted that the bypass would reduce traffic in Tralee town centre by a quarter and would reduce all traffic times by a third. The CPO, that’s now been given approval, will affect 79 landowners
