Kinsale Road Interchange Scheme

  • Contract works will be substantially completed by the end of this week.


  • At the moment landscaping and general tidy up works are ongoing and we hope to have them finished by next week-end.


  • The new traffic lights are also going to be set up over the coming days. This will involve turning off the existing lights for short periods on Thursday 5th October 2006. We then hope to have the new lights (including the lights on the airport approach) operational tomorrow. Obviously, caution is advised while people get familiar with the new system.


  • The new lights will be vehicle activated, i.e. they will respond to the changing traffic volumes on the various approach roads during the course of each day. Setting up these lights fully will take a number of days but we hope to have the process completed by Sunday 8th October 2006 in time for the official opening on Monday 9th October 2006.

If you have any queries please contact us on the above number or on the helpline number 021-4824342.
