Traffic problems abound in Kilkenny as 'Comer Road is closed

Traffic woes relating to the construction of the Central Access Scheme in Kilkenny continue this week, with a section of the Castlecomer Road now closed until Friday.

Fox Contracts have given notice to local residents that the road will be closed from yesterday (Monday) until Friday between the hours of 7am and 9pm. The road is closed from the northern side of the new road’s roundabout up to the roundabout with Barrack Street.

Local access only to the residents and businesses of Castlecomer Road, Newpark Drive, and the new road. No through traffic will be permitted.

The works include surfacing and road marking. The road surface of the roundabout at Newpark Drive/Castlecomer Road has been in a poor condition for weeks now. 

Traffic problems persist in the area at peak times particularly.
