Footpath needed at  busy location in Sallins


Landscaping work on the Sallins link road leading to the bypass will be carried out in between now and December.

Kildare County Council has also indicated that the contractor on the bypass scheme will be carrying out the grass cutting on the route  for a duration of three years after substantial completion, which was achieved in April 2021. 

The contract allows for three cuts per year and to date the grass has been cut twice in 2021, councillors were told at a Naas Municipal District meeting.
