Council Asked To Create Footpath From Blennerville To Tonevane Bend

Posted by


A TRALEE councillor asked the local authority to examine the possibility and potential of creating a footpath from Blennerville to Tonevane bend.

Labour Cllr Terry O’Brien was speaking at the recent meeting of Tralee Municipal District of Kerry County Council.

Cllr O’Brien said while it was great that the canal walkway will be extended all the way to the Spa, it would also be beneficial to create a safe, properly signposted, accessible link from Blennerville bridge, all the way to join the Kerry Camino which can be accessed via the road at the Tonevane bend.

In reply, Council management said they will be preparing a Feasibility Report in 2022 for submission to TII to undertake road improvements on the N86 between Blennerville and Camp.

The provision of facilities to cater for pedestrian and cyclists will be one of the objectives of the proposed road improvements which will be rolled out in the long-term.

They said the sustainability of selected improvements in the short-term between Blennerville and Tonevane needs to be considered in the context of the long-term improvement along this section of the N86. This will be examined as part of the Feasibility Report.
