The N71 Ring of Kerry road between Torc Waterfall and the carpark for Dinis Cottage will be closed to all traffic from Monday, 24 June 2019 to Friday, 5 July 2019.
The purpose of the closure is to facilitate emergency repairs to a section of the retaining wall and road at Dinis. The contractors engaged will also be carrying out night-time work to minimise the duration of the road closure.
A diversion will be in place via the N22 (Cork Road) and Kilgarvan (R569) and advisory signage will be erected.
Access will be maintained from Killarney to Muckross House, Torc Waterfall and the ‘Cardiac Steps’ walkway. Access to Ladies’ View and Moll’s Gap will be maintained from the Kenmare/Sneem side. Businesses affected by the closure will be kept fully briefed on the works.
Kerry County Council, in consultation with the contractor, is endeavouring to minimise the duration of the road closure, in particular for local businesses, tourism operators and the upcoming Ring of Kerry Cycle which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 6 July 2019.
Regular updates will be provided through local media, social media and the council’s website. Kerry County Council regrets any inconvenience this road closure may cause.
