Temporary R148 Road Realignment - Maynooth Road, Leixlip - Part 8

PLANNING and DEVELOPMENT ACT 2000 (as amended)


Temporary R148 Road Realignment

Leixlip – Maynooth Road, Leixlip

Pursuant to the requirements of the above, notice is hereby given of the proposal to temporarily realign a section of the R148 Leixlip - Maynooth regional road between the R449/R148 roundabout and the L1014 (Kellystown Lane) approximately 800m to the west of the R449/R148 roundabout. The proposed realigned road will maintain the link between Maynooth and Leixlip while safely facilitating construction work on adjacent industrial lands.

A section of the rerouted road will pass through the curtilage of a protected structure – Collinstown House (RPS no. B11-117). It is proposed to temporarily dismantle a section of the wall of Collinstown House (RPS no. B11-117) to facilitate the construction of the temporary road.
