Works on Caha Tunnel to take place overnight

Works on a busy road connecting Kerry and Cork are now to take place at night-time later this month.

Kerry County Council says the Caha Tunnel on the N71 at the county bounds will close for works from Monday, September 24th for twelve nights.

The road will be closed from 7pm to 7am daily until Saturday, October 6th.

The local authority says the closure is being done overnight to avoid major disruption to traffic and alternative routes will be clearly signposted.
