KERRY County Council has closed the R569 Kenmare road from the junction with the N22 Cork-Killarney road to Morley’s Bridge following storm damage which led to a landslide at the weekend.
Repair works have commenced on site and updates will be provided when available.
The extent of the damage caused by a landslide on the R569 Road Clonkeen/Loo Bridge to Kilgarvan road is being assessed and Kerry County Council deployed excavators today to establish solid ground to determine the extent of the work required and to prepare a design solution.
A number of diversions are in place:
- Motorists travelling from Killarney to and from Kenmare/Kilgarvan should use the N71 Moll’s Gap road.
- Traffic travelling from Cork is diverted at Ballyvourney on the N22 road onto the L3201 (Coolea/Top of Coom) road which connects with the R569 road at Morley’s Bridge.
- Traffic from Cork can also use the N71 Moll’s Gap Road via Killarney.
Kerry County Council will be salting the diversion routes, as required, and the routes are clearly signposted.
Further updates will be provided on the council’s website and through KillarneyToday.com and other local news sources.
