Main Castleisland to Farranfore road re-opens today

The main Castleisland to Farranfore road will re-open to traffic at 3pm this afternoon.

Works to reconstruct Dysert bridge are now complete, two weeks ahead of schedule.

The road has been closed since the end of May to allow for replacement of the bridge as well as upgrading and resurfacing works on both approaches.

Charlie O’Sullivan, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Operations with Kerry County Council, says every effort was made to have the road re-opened as quickly as possible.
