Meanwhile in Ardfert, work is set to begin on substantial drainage works, including manhole upgrading and construction, the laying of a storm overflow pipe to the adjacent 600MM surface water pipe and the provision of extra road gullies, near the Station Road junction in the coming weeks.

These works will enable the drainage system to cater for the flood waters which flow in from the Tralee Road and Station Road at times of intense rainfall.

When that job is complete, work will then begin on laying 7km of a new water mains from Listellick to Tubrid, Ardfert. This work is scheduled to be completed by May of 2022.
