Two M7 lanes through County Kildare will open next weekend

Work on the M7 is progressing

Two motorway lanes will be completed next weekend, easing M7 traffic congestion for commuters.

Contractor SIAC Colas JV are targeting the forthcoming May bank holiday weekend for the completion of two new lanes between Junction 9 Naas north and Junction 11 M9/M7.

Fine Gael TD for Kildare south Martin Heydon said the contractors are also confident that the three lanes from Junction 8 (Kill) & 10 (Naas south) will be opened by the end of May 2019, with the remaining section of verge works from Junction 10 (Naas south) to Junction 11 M9 / M7 merge to be completed by the end of June.

He contacted  Transport Infrastructure Ireland, Minister Shane Ross and Kildare County Council about proposed completion timelines following complaints from residents adding “there has been a very significant impact on local roads network with increased traffic through our towns and villages like Two Mile House, Brannockstown and Kilcullen.
