There’s no indication of when funding will be made available for a bypass of Killorglin.
Preliminary work was undertaken in 2009 to examine potential route options to provide a bypass for the mid-Kerry town.
No funding was available from Transport Infrastructure Ireland then so a full assessment wasn’t carried out and a preferred route wasn’t identified.
Kerry County Council says they raised the matter with TII at a recent meeting, but no commitment was given on when funding would be allocated to the scheme.
The council was responding to a question from Sinn Féin Cllr Damian Quigg.
