Flesk works are un­der­way

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

IM­PROVE­MENT works on the Flesk Bridge are un­der­way and Kerry County Coun­cil ex­pects them to con­tinue un­til mid-De­cem­ber.

It comes as part of a €2 mil­lion in­vest­ment in up­grad­ing bridges around Kerry, and the Flesk Bridge works will re­quire a one-lane stop-go traf­fic sys­tem.

The en­hance­ment will see works car­ried out on the bridge para­pets, rail­ing, and road sur­face, while im­prove­ments will also be car­ried out on the foot­path and cy­cle lane across the bridge.

The lo­cal author­ity de­scribed the bridge as part of an “im­por­tant tourist route” and said the works are be­ing car­ried out out­side of peak sea­son in a bid to min­imise dis­rup­tion.

“The in­vest­ment, with the sup­port of Trans­port In­fra­struc­ture Ire­land, rep­re­sents an im­por­tant en­hance­ment to this well-known bridge across the River Flesk”, Kerry County Coun­cil told The Ker­ry­man. “It in­di­cat­eds the Coun­cil’s com­mit­ment to up­grad­ing in­fra­struc­ture in the Kil­lar­ney area.”
