The contractor of the M7 upgrade works, SIAC Colas JV, has informed Kildare County Council that, subject to favourable weather conditions and completion of all necessary activities, 3 lanes will be available to traffic on the M7/N7 Eastbound carriageway from Junction 10 (Naas South) through to Junction 8 (Johnstown), from Monday.
However, motorists are advised that the reduced temporary speed limit of 60kph will remain in place while works are ongoing at locations on the verge/hard shoulder area.
It is also anticipated that, on the week commencing the 24 June, 3 lanes will be available Westbound from Junction 8 (Johnstown), to Junction 10 (Naas South).
At that time the temporary speed limit will be increased on both the Eastbound and Westbound carriageways to 80kph between Junction 8 (Johnstown), to Junction 10 (Naas South).
Lane restrictions and the 60kph temporary speed limit will remain in place in both directions between Junction 10 (Naas South) and Junction 11 (M7/M9 merge) until further notice.
