THE Council has released some images of what the area around New Road, Godfrey Place and Denny Street junctions will look like next year should proposed changes be approved by councillors.

As we reported yesterday (click here for details), public consultation has commenced this week on the next phase of multi-million euro enhancement works in Tralee town centre.

The new phase of upgrading works in Tralee is expected to commence at the beginning of 2022 following public consultation and a tendering process.

It will see a continuation of improvements completed on The Mall and those currently underway in the Russell Street and Bridge Street area.

The proposed works will provide pedestrian friendly linkages between the Island of Geese site (former Denny Site) and the town centre. Road widths are being reduced to slow traffic movements and footpaths widths are being increased to enhance pedestrian safety. Public realm improvements will be carried out along six streets and junctions including:

• Staughton’s Row and Godfrey Place
• New Road and the Island of Geese
• Lower Rock Street
• Lower Castle Street
• Bill Booley’s Lane
• Bridge Lane

Here’s an idea of the changes proposed to some of the areas of town (before and after)…

The proposals have been published on the Kerry County Council website and submissions, as part of the Part VIII planning process must be submitted by 14 May 2021. Click here to see the plans.

Welcoming the plans, Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Terry O’Brien said the investment in Tralee town centre was continuing at an important time for businesses, shoppers and residents.

“It’s very exciting to see the new phase of works being rolled out and with the support of the URDF funding announced recently. This work will further enhance the public realm in the town centre for the benefit of everyone who lives in and visits our beautiful town. I would encourage everyone to participate in the public consultation process and to share your views with us as local councillors.”
