Project Overview

The development comprises approximately 7km of single carriageway road between the start and end points on the N69 Tralee Tarbert Road and the existing N69 in Ballygologue. Of this 7km, approximately 3.8km is new road construction, around 1.2km is an upgrade of the existing road network and 2km is an upgrade to the existing John B. Keane Road.

Scheme also includes the additional provision of shared cycle and pedestrian facilities. The proposed development includes three new roundabouts, four bridges, and a number of culverts (to either accommodate existing watercourses/drainage ditches or to provide flood mitigation). One of the bridges is a river crossing of the river Feale and is over 115m in length. The proposed development also includes attenuation ponds and wetlands, to attenuate and improve the quality of surface water runoff.
