Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Leo Varadkar, today launched the second major road project in less than a week, when he turned the sod on the N22 Tralee Bypass.
It is believed the Tralee Bypass will help help reduce road accidents in the area as well as removing traffic from the center of Tralee Town. The scheme will also provide alternative access for N22 traffic from Cork and a full high quality linkage between the N21, N22, N69 and N70 National Routes and improved access to the N86. The Bypass section includes a dedicated combined pedestrian/cycleway. It is envisaged that the scheme will deliver an average end to end reduction in journey times of 73%.
Minister Varadkar commented on the the new motorway as he turned the first sod to get construction underway. He said that “The Tralee Bypass will upgrade access to County Kerry and allow Tralee to benefit from the removal of unnecessary through traffic whilst improving the travel experience for tourists and businesses alike. Just last Friday, we announce the commencement of works on the N25 Cork Southern Ring Road project. The investment of €97m on this project incorporates Cycle-track and footways along over the full length of the Tralee Bypass.”
