Major Delays To Thurles Traffic From Monday

Kickham-StreetAt present, as Thurles residents are aware, water pipe laying works are currently being undertaken here in Liberty Square, in the town.

To further facilitate these works now approaching the River Suir Bridge (N75), and on into Cathedral Street and east into Kickham Street, it remains necessary to implement a one-way traffic management system.  Same will consist of a Stop & Go System during construction working hours and reverting to Traffic Lights during non-construction hours. (Area to be affected shown in Red.)

To reduce traffic disruption, to a minimum, in Thurles Town Centre, a temporary traffic diversion route will come into effect around the town of Thurles.  The purpose of this traffic diversion route is to minimise traffic crossing the Suir Bridge.  Motorists are therefore advised to use the alternative routes and thus avoid this area. (School commuters take note.)

To this end diversion routes are advised as follows:

Thurles bound traffic travelling South on the M8 Motorway:- Traffic destined for the Northern side should follow the diversion signs, and proceed along the M8 and exit the M8 at Junction 6 (Horse and Jockey) to approach Thurles via the N62 (Slievenamon Road).  Traffic destined for the Eastern side of Thurles town (i.e. not entering the Town Centre) should exit the M8 at Junction 5 (Two-Mile-Borris).

Thurles bound traffic travelling North on the M8 Motorway – Traffic destined for the West side of Thurles should exit the M8 at Junction 6 (Horse and Jockey) and approach Thurles via the N62 (Sleivenamon Road).  Traffic destined for the Eastern side of Thurles town (i.e. not entering Liberty Square) should exit the M8 at Junction 5 (Two-Mile-borris).

Eastbound traffic from the North and West of Thurles – Traffic destined for the East travelling from the North and West side of Thurles should proceed to Thurles through Liberty Square and follow the diversion signs via the N62 to Junction 6 (Horse and Jockey) on the M8.

The above Temporary Traffic Management Plan will be in operation starting from 9:00am next Monday 9th September 2013 until completion of this necessary work.

David Walsh Civil Engineering Ltd. apologises for any inconvenience these works may cause and they greatly appreciate your patience and assistance during this period, when major delays can be expected.
