The ring road has been in Council plans since 2002.

It extends from the Leixlip Road at Blacklion to the Celbridge Road at Griffin Rath.

Angela Feeney, the Maynooth Labour party local election candidate, said she will be seeking the provision of roundabouts on the Leixlip and Celbridge road junctions instead of traffic lights.

Work on the second part of the Eastern Ring road from Celbridge Road to the Straffan began a month ago.
