Consultants have been appointed to find a solution to the closure of the Coughlanstson Road in Ballymore.
A scheme to repair the damage will be prepared and this will start shortly with the planning phases, which will include an examination of the options, the development of a business case, engagement with utilities companies, and the selection of a preferred option.
Mayor of Naas Municipal District Rob Power welcomed the announcement said: "The people of Coughlanstown, Ballymore and surrounding areas have put up with an awful lot since the road closure in 2016. We're still a number of months away from an agreed programme of works but this is certainly a positive step."
He added: “On my first day as Mayor I met with local residents and committed to keeping the pressure on all parties involved in this issue and updating locals at all times. Since then the Coughlanstown road has remained a standing item on the council's meeting agenda and today we're seeing positive movement toward finding a solution."
The road at Coughlanstown has been since September 2016. Kildare County Council stopped traffic using the road after a section of the bank at the side of the road gave way.
