Kildare County Council are currently progressing an Advanced Works Contract for the Athy Distibutor Road Project.
It will be necessary for public safety for Kildare County Council to fence off the construction site and thus the access from the Dun Brinn area along the old railway bridge to the Carlow Road (R417) will be fenced off and no access will be allowed.
This is a necessary measure to prevent unauthorised access and to ensure public safety.
The existing access to the Canal Walk alongside Tegral will be maintained in the short term. Kildare County Council will give prior notice when it is necessary to restrict access along this route.
Any inconvenience caused is regretted.
