Kildare County Council gives notice, in accordance with Section 75 of the Roads Act 1993, that it intends to close the following road:

The M9 Northbound between Junction 3 (Athy) and Junction 2 (Kilcullen) from Monday, 10 August 2015 at 9.00am to Friday, 14 August 2015 at 4.00pm.

This closure is necessary to facilitate necessary pavement surfacing works on the northbound carriageway.

Alternative routes:
Diversions will be in place and northbound traffic will be required to exit at Junction 3 (Athy) and continue along the N78 towards Athy, then along the R418 towards Kilcullen, rejoining the M9 Motorway at Junction 2 (Kilcullen). The National Roads Authority and An Garda Síochána have no objection to this temporary road closure.

Diversionary routes, which will be clearly signposted, (as agreed with An Garda Síochána) will be in place for the duration of the works.

Please note that these works are being carried out under the National Roads Authority Motorway Maintenance and Renewals Contract and any queries should be directed to the Motorway Traffic Control Centre by phoning 0818 715 100 or email
