The N77 Kilkenny to Castlecomer/Ballyragget Road – from just north of the Castlecomer Road Roundabout on the Kilkenny Ring Road (Junction 10) to the N77/N78 Junction at Hennebry’s Cross – is closed for essential maintenance works today, tomorrow, and again next weekend.
The road will be closed today (Monday) from 9.30am to 4.30pm, and again for the same period tomorrow. This road closure will be reintroduced again on Saturday, August 25 until Tuesday, August 28.
The road closure hampered public transport services yesterday (Sunday) between 7am and 9pm. Some Bus Eireann coaches were unable to service Castlecomer during the afternoon, inconveniencing passengers who had to disembark as the bus followed a detour via Carlow.
