Tenders for works on N11 at Kilmacanogue being assessed

Tender applications for works on the N11 at Kilmacanogue have been received and are currently being assessed, according to Wicklow County Council.

The tender for the project went out in May for the parallel service road.

At that time, work was expected to start mid-summer and take six to nine months.

The safety project will bring vehicles coming from the service station onto a road separate from the motorway, and along to the roundabout before rejoining the M11.

The works will prevent traffic coming straight from the service station exit into fast-moving traffic.

The tender is for the construction of a segregated service road on the southbound carriageway of the N11 at Kilmacanogue between Junction 7 (Bray South) and Junction 8 (Kilmacanogue).

The works will include carriageway widening into the central reserve by up to three metres over a distance of 1.7km, provision of two sign gantries, alterations to existing services, replacement of safety barrier and associated traffic management.

Transport Infrastructure Ireland announced plans for the scheme in 2017 and a public consultation process followed.

The works were approved at a full meeting of Wicklow County Council in July 2017.
