Last Naas crane to come down in early morning operation

Two cranes were removed from Corban's Lane

The last remaining crane at the unopened Naas shopping centre will be taken down in an early morning operation aimed at minimising disruption.

The Leader understands that the operation could be concluded before most retailers open for business open next Saturday in the town.

Kildare County Council and Naas gardai  are coordinating the exercise  to dismantle the structure from South Main Street. The other two were removed using lifting equipment brought to Corban’s Lane.

It’s also understood it will not be necessary to divert traffic from street.

Instead a “stop-go” traffic management arrangement will be put in place, reducing traffic flow to a single lane.

Subject to weather conditions as well as the number of vehicles and people present, the initial work could start as early at 3.30.
