N70 Kilderry

The N70 Kilderry Bends Improvement Scheme comprised of the design and construction of a realigned section of roadway approximately 6.0 km in length between Miltown and Killorglin in Co. Kerry on behalf of our client Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) and Kerry County Council. The new route was located on a greenfield site, to the south east of the existing N70 route and the road works were constructed predominantly off-line. The chosen road type was a Type 2 Single Carriageway with a climbing lane facility for northbound traffic. The N70 Kilderry Bends Improvement Scheme provided improved geometric alignment, a positive drainage system and standardised access along this section of the N70 National Secondary Route. The scheme also included a pedestrian walkway adjacent to the new road and a new 4 -leg roundabout at the Knockavota Junction. Following the completion of the new road, improvements were carried out to the old N70 route including resurfacing, road markings and signage amendments. The project was delivered four months ahead of programme, safely, within budget and to the highest standards in quality. Thanks to Sorensen crew for this great effort.
