: 03/08/2018 - 12:53

There's deep concern in the Kilmeague and Allenwood area about the closure of a road there for six months.

Irish Water is to lay a new water-main on the road between the village, and Allenwood Cross, on the R415, in a project scheduled to begin on March 27th.

As Kfm News reported at that time, Kildare County Council published notification of the closure on or about February 28th.

The closing date for submissions is 5pm tomorrow.

120 families, numerous business, including Hanlon Concrete, will be affected.

Chris Byrne is a local resident, and runs the Collóg Equestrian Centre.

His premises holds two shows a week, meaning 350 vehicles enter and leave the site, weekly.

A diversion route will be in place from Kilmeague Village along the L7081 to Downings Cross and along the R409 to Dagwelds Cross and then the R403 to Allenwood Cross Roads. 

Emergency access and pedestrian access will be maintained. 

Submissions may be made to KCC on or before 5.00 p.m. on Friday 9 March 2018.
