Motorway project between Naas and Newbridge is delayed again

The M7

The completion of the motorway widening project between Naas and Newbridge is to be delayed again.

Kildare County Council previously indicated that the widening of the Naas by-pass to three lanes along the 14 kilometres route would be done this month

Now Kildare County Council official Niall Morrissey has indicated that it will be towards the end of the summer before the work is done.

The work  is causing long delays to the estimated 70,000 vehicles using the route on a daily basis.

Mr Morrissey told Newstalk that the project would probably finish by the end of July.
