The latest lane changes in connection with the M7/N7 roadworks redevelopment near Naas will come into effect from 6am this Saturday morning, March 9.

Subject to favourable weather conditions, the next section of M7/N7eastbound mainline traffic will continue with movement onto the new carriageway surface, adjacent to the new central median.

The current eastbound split from before Junction 9 (Naas North) through to Junction 8 (Johnstown) will be removed and traffic will run in two lanes, adjacent to the new central concrete barrier, up to Junction 9 (Naas North) on-slip.  From here a third (auxiliary) lane will be available through to Junction 8 (Johnstown) off- slip.

This arrangement will facilitate ongoing works to the new Lane 1 hard shoulder/verge.   A minimum of two lanes will be maintained during peak hours of 6am to 10pm at all times.  Once traffic has been moved across, works will continue to the adjacent verge/hard shoulder areas, which will include for the tie-in of new slip lanes.

Kildare County Council said any inconvenience caused to the public is regretted.
