Emergency road repair works completed in Farranfore

17 September 2021

Update 12:45pm: Road repair works are now complete and both lanes have fully re-opened.

Irish Water, working in partnership with Kerry County Council wishes to advise that an emergency road repair is on-going in Farranfore village until Midday today following pipe laying works last night. The works being carried out in Farraranfore form part of Irish Water’s National Leakage Reduction Programme and will deliver a safer, more reliable water supply once complete.

The works are being carried out during evening and night-time hours – from 7pm to 7am Monday evening to Friday morning and will continue until the end of October. To ensure as little disruption to homes, businesses, commuters and holiday makers as possible, Irish Water, Kerry County Council and our contractor, Ward and Burke, have agreed that the works will be carried out by night. The N22 Killarney to Tralee road will have a one lane stop-go system in place from 7pm-7am, Monday to Friday from August 30 until the end of October 2021, with the road reopening fully during the day. No works will be carried out over the weekend for the duration of the works schedule.

Irish Water continues to work at this time with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
