Kildare motorists are being reminded that a busy bridge and road used by many travelling into Naas or on to the motorway to Dublin closes for three weeks from this morning.

Kildare County Council has given notice that it intends to close the the L2030 road at Victoria Bridge, between Floods Cross (L2030/ L2006) and Thomastown Junction (L2030/L7041), Thomastown, Caragh, Naas.

The road will be closed from Tuesday, August 8 to Friday, August 25, to facilitate resurfacing works.
