WHILE the Council confirmed this week that the work on The Mall is unlikely to be completed earlier than the scheduled November finish date, progress looks steady as June ends.

We called down for a look on Friday and saw that very soon, people will be able to walk by shops uninterrupted by work on both sides of the lower Mall, which will be very important for traders.

Pavements have been completed down to Paco on one side and to Der O’Sullivan’s on the other.

However, the centre is now effectively a big building site. It’s beginning to look a little like the artist’s impression though, especially at the entrance to The Mall via Denny Street.

What the Mall is supposed to look like this November.

Work will continue for the next six weeks until August 11 when they will be suspended until August 28 while the Rose of Tralee festival is going on. Then it’s another two and a half months to finish the job.

It’s business as usual all the time for shops until November 21 — when the street is scheduled to open again to traffic — so support the local town centre traders.
