Castleisland to Farranfore road to open in coming days

The main Castleisland to Farranfore road is to re-open in the coming days, two weeks ahead of schedule.

The road has been closed since May 24th to facilitate a full replacement of Dysert Bridge and road realignment works at the site.

Works are almost fully completed and it is expected that the road will be open before the weekend, Kerry County Council told Radio Kerry.

Upgrading and resurfacing of the road on both approaches to the bridge were also carried out as part of the project.
