Killarney’s Active Travel Plan and cycle network is to begin construction early next year.

In February 2021 Kerry County Council revealed an ambitious plan to build four new cycleway withing the town centre.

The first of these is plan to link Cleeney Roundabout with Rock Road and St Anne’s Road.

At this week’s Killarney Municipal District meeting, Kerry County Council confirmed that construction could begin on the Rock Road section either Quarter One or Quarter Two next year.

Other sections like the Deerpark Road, Gaelscoil Road / Chestnut Drive, and Flesk Cycleway will begin construction late next year.

The final sections, including the Upper Lewis Road portion won't see shovels on the ground until at least 2026.

“A total of €1,043,000 has been allocated by the National Transport Authority in 2023 across the 10 Active Travel Projects proposed for the Killarney Municipal District,” a council official told the meeting.

“These projects are currently being progressed by the Kerry County Council Active Travel Team. It must be noted that these anticipated start dates for construction are dependent on process steps which are outside of Kerry County Council's Control.”
