The plans for improvements to the Kells Road in Kilkenny city have taken a step forward with an agreement between Kilkenny County Council and a “major landowner.”

Director of services John Mulholland informed members of the agreement at a meeting of the council’s Kilkenny electoral area on Thursday.

The tender documents are now being prepared for the advanced works, he said, and the council hopes to “commence very shortly.”

There should be visible works taking place this year at least, he said.
