KCC Says It Doesn't Recommend Temporary Traffic Instructure In Sallins For The Duration Of The M7 Works.

: 01/16/2018 - 18:21

Kildare County Council says it does not recommend the installation of temporary traffic infrastructure in Sallins for the duration of the M7 works.

The suite of three linked upgrades include the widening to three lanes of the M7 between Naas and the M9, the Osberstown Interchange and R407 Sallins Bypass

Work on the €110 million project began and January 6th and may take up to three years.

Before the January meeting of the Naas Municipal District, Fianna Fáil Cllr., Carmel Kelly, wants Kildare County Council to "consider installing temporary traffic lights at the junction of Chapel Avenue/Main Street junction" for the duration of the works

In response, the council says "The provision of temporary traffic signals at the junction of Chapel Avenue/Main Street is not recommended as it would negatively impact on traffic flows within the village and would create a safety hazard at this location. Works on the M7 mainline commenced on 6 January 2018, and a Construction Contract Monitoring Committee is in place for the duration of the works. This is the forum for Kildare County Council to raise any unanticipated impact on Naas or Sallins as required."
