Drawings of the scheme, and progress to date, will be made available to the public at a special information event at the Listowel Arms Hotel next Wednesday, September 21st from 12 noon to 8pm.
The purpose of the scheme, according to the Council, is to relieve traffic congestion in the town and improve flow.
Representatives from Kerry County Council’s National Road Design Office will be in attendance at the public information day to answer queries relating to the N69 Listowel Bypass Road Improvement Scheme.
The scheme is located west of Listowel Town and consists of 3.65km of new road, 2.3km on line improvement of the existing John B Keane road and 1.5km of side-road improvements at junctions.
The scheme includes three new roundabouts on the bypass; replacement of the existing roundabout on John B Keane Road and one new at-grade priority junction at Forge Road.
Following the statutory public consultation process, a hearing and An Bórd Pleanála decision is expected within 12 months. The tender process is expected to take nine months with construction taking a further 24 months.
The information day at the Listowel Arms Hotel takes place on September 21st at the Listowel Arms Hotel – drawings of the scheme may also be viewed online at KerryCoCo.ie.
