These works are part of the preliminary works ahead of the enhancements in Tralee town centre which will provide for two-way traffic flow on Denny Street in the New Year and improved pedestrian facilities on The Mall.

At the moment there is single lane traffic approaching the traffic lights at Princes Street/Ivy Terrace. The Council says there will be minimal disruption to motorists and traffic flow during the works but pedestrian access will be fully maintained.

The main development works at The Mall including the development of a shared space are scheduled to commence in the New Year.

Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Terry O’Brien, in welcoming the works to improve the town centre, said: “Kerry County Council is working in partnership with the local businesses to promote town centre shopping for the festive season and will be providing free parking after 1pm between the 5 December 2016 and the 7 January 2017.”

The contract for the preliminary works on traffic signals was awarded to Elmore Ltd. The project is being funded by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, under the Smarter Travel Towns Initiative, and by Kerry County Council.
