Caha Tunnel closure to start tonight

Works on a busy road connecting Kerry and Cork begin tonight.

The Caha Tunnel on the N71 at the county bounds will close for works for twelve nights.

The road will shut from 7pm to 7am daily until Saturday week, the 6th of October.

Kerry County Council says the closure is being done overnight to avoid major disruption to traffic and alternative routes will be clearly signposted.
