An Bord Pleanala has made its decision on the Athy Southern Distributor Road project.
Kildare County Council submitted a planning application, along with an Environmental Impact Statement, to An Bord Pleanala on Friday, April 21st.
The compulsory purchase order was published on April 25th.
The road was first mooted in the 1970s, to funnel chronic traffic congestion out of Athy town proper.
Kildare South Fine Gael TD, Martin Heydon, says An Bord Pleanala has noted that it will not publish its decision, or the relevant order, until Monday
