Works will commence this month on a multi-million euro road project in Killorglin.
Kerry County Council has confirmed that a €3.6 million road improvement project is to commence on the Tralee-Killorglin road near Astellas.
The project aims to incorporate the section of the N70 from Kennedys Cross to Bansha.
Fianna Fail councillor Michael Cahill had compared the section to a third world road and asked the council to give an explanation as to why works hadn’t commenced despite previous promises.
The works are expected to take 6 months to complete.
