Judicial review application on Lewis Road improvement plans

There’s been an application for a judicial review on plans to improve the safety at the junction of Lewis Road and the Killarney Bypass.

Last June Killarney councillors agreed to proposals; there have been calls for changes to the layout and approaches to this section of road for years, as it’s been the location of several crashes.

The proposed upgrade involves installing kerbs and bollards to prevent all right turns both to and from the Lewis Road, and to prevent illegal U-turns on the road.

It’ll also see the construction of a roundabout east of the Ballydribeen Railway Bridge, and realignment of the Kilcummin Road to connect to the proposed roundabout.

The development has now been stalled, however, as an application has been made for a judicial review.
