Kerry County Council inspecting 250 bridges across the county

Kerry County Council is carrying out visual inspection of approximately 250 bridges on national, regional and local roads across the county.

Kenmare Cllr Dan McCarthy tabled a motion at the recent meeting of Kerry County Council querying the state of bridges and any potential build-up of debris.

In response Kerry County Council said they were carrying out inspections and would prioritise areas with a history of flooding.

They said any debris which could restrict river flows will be removed.
