Night-time road closure required in Farranfore Village

27 September 2021

Irish Water wishes to advise that watermains rehabilitation works on the N22 Killarney to Tralee Road require a night-time road closure in Farranfore Village. In order to progress the works, the road will be closed from 7pm to 7am each night from Monday, October 4 to Thursday night, October 7. The road will be open each day outside of these hours.

Diversions will be in place and will be signposted on approach to the area from all routes. The recommended diversion for traffic travelling from the Killarney area to Tralee and vice versa is via Killorglin and Milltown on the N72 and N70 national roads. Local access for residents and emergency services will be provided.

These road works are required as part of the replacement of approximately 1km of problematic trunk watermains with new 600mm ductile iron pipes in Farranfore.

Irish Water understands this type of work can be inconvenient and will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause.

Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
