15:00 Sunday 17th of March 2019

Kildare Co Council said that the second bridge over the River Liffey in Celbridge is dependent on funding being available in coming months and years.

Cllr Brendan Young had raised the issue at the Celbridge and Leixlip Municipal District monthly meeting asked for a report on progress with regard to a second Liffey crossing in
Celbridge?

The Council said that it applied for funding for the construction of the Celbridge Southern
Relief Road and Second Liffey Crossing under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF).

Officials added: "It is listed as Category B project under the terms of this funding mechanism, i.e., a project that requires further development in 2019.

"The URDF allocation will allow elements of the proposal to be further developed in 2019, with potential for further funding in subsequent years, subject to agreement and performance.

"The development of a proposal brief to engage consultancy services to progress this project is currently underway in the Roads Department."

Cycling measures 

On another issue, Cllr Young asked that the council install a cycle lane or shared use markings on the Hazelhatch Road between Shinkeen Road and the pedestrian lights at Primrose Gate Estate.

The Council said that the municipal district office will examine this request in line with proposed
Local Property Tax project at the same location.
