AS part of the next phase of a €1.7m investment in the Denny Street/The Mall area of Tralee under the Tralee Active Travel project, Kerry County Council is proposing to close The Mall and Bridge Street (from the junction with Russell Street towards the Mall) to traffic from April 24 to November 21.

The statutory road closure notice is being published this week and any person having an objection should lodge same, in writing, with the Administrative Officer, Operations, Capital Infrastructure and Safety Department, Kerry County Council, County Buildings, Tralee, County Kerry not later than 5pm on Tuesday, April 4.

The closure is to facilitate the introduction of a shared space public realm on The Mall which will see the installation of a new paved surface.

Throughout the works, The Mall and Bridge Street areas will remain fully open for business and pedestrian access will be fully maintained at all times.

• Traffic diversions will be in place but access for emergency services will be maintained.

• Works will be carried out in phases to minimise disruption.

• The taxi rank on The Mall will close and will move to a new permanent 24/7 location at the Abbey Court Car Park near Boots.

• For the duration of the works loading/deliveries will be facilitated in The Square with light commercial vehicles entering via Abbey Court and exiting via Dominic Street between 8am and 11am in the mornings.

• Kerry County Council will maintain direct contact with retailers on The Mall to ensure that any concerns or queries they may have are dealt with promptly.
