N70 Kilderry Road Scheme

N70 Kilderry Road Scheme

Client : Kerry County Council

General Description

The N70 Kilderry Road Scheme comprised of the design and construction of a realigned section of roadway approximately 4.0 km in length between Milltown and Killorglin in Co. Kerry.  This new road was a safety initiative by TII and Kerry County Council to bypass the existing Kilderry Bends. 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.
