Listen: Planning Permission Granted To Athy Southern Distributor Road.

: 10/13/2017 - 12:20

An Bord Pleanala has granted planning permission for the €34 million Athy Southern Distributor Road project.

The national planning authority confirmed on Thursday that it had arrived at a determination on Kildare County Council's planning application.

ABP won't, however,  publish the relevant order until Monday

The road was first proposed in the 1970s, as a solution to chronic traffic congestion in Athy town centre

A three day oral hearing on the planning application took place in Athy in July

Sinn Fein Athy Municipal District Councillor, Thomas Redmond, says there is only one remaining stumbling block.
