Tralee Bypass to open on Friday August 16th

13 Aug

Kerry County Council today announced the €97m route will be officially opened on Friday 16th August at 12:00pm by Minister Jimmy Deenihan.

The bypass was originally due to open in March; however contractors BAM said this date would be delayed due to a number of factors including uncovering deposits of limestone, as well as heavy rainfall last year.

Friday’s opening now means the bypass is open in time for this year’s Rose of Tralee Festival, and expected to reduce journey times through Tralee by at least 8 to 10 minutes. Kerry South Deputy for Fine Gael, Brendan Griffin has welcomed the announcement.
