Glanbehy Bridge/South Kerry Greenway

The proposed realignment of the Glanbehy Bridge, close to Glenbeigh National School and the development of the South Kerry Greenway, also nearby, by Kerry County Council, may provide scope to provide a link from the school to the Greenway, allowing pupils to cycle safely on a daily basis to and from their studies. This was advised at a recent meeting of members, by Council officials in reply to a Motion on the subject by local Fianna Fáil Councillor, Michael Cahill.

“Democracy is alive and well in Glenbeigh as can be seen by the fact that I received hand written requests from pupils of Glenbeigh NS, asking me to investigate the possibility of providing such a facility, whereby they could cycle to and from school daily, away from vehicular traffic” stated Councillor Cahill, Deputy Mayor of Kerry and Cathaoirleach of Kenmare Municipal District.

“I have been involved in pressing for both the South Kerry Greenway and the realignment of the Glanbehy Bridge, and now that both projects are proceeding, it is fabulous to see our younger citizens calling for a little modification which will benefit school users for many years to come, both pupils and teachers” said the Rossbeigh based Councillor.

“The Glanbehy Bridge realignment on the N70 will be very welcome to all road-users on the Ring of Kerry as the present structure is narrow and crooked and was built at a time of completely different traffic volumes. Being at the Glenbeigh NS entrance added further safety issues for those entering and exiting, and it was clear that an upgrade had to happen” said Councillor Cahill.

“And now, our young pupils have shown the way with their own innovative take on the project” added Councillor Cahill.

Caragh Bridge

Kerry County Council have raised safety issues at Caragh Bridge on the Ring of Kerry with Transport Infrastructure Ireland’s Safety and Signage Division in response to a motion submitted by local Fianna Fáil Councillor, Michael Cahill.

“Caragh Bridge, on the busy N70 Ring of Kerry route is picturesque but caters for only one lane of traffic at a time. It is served by a sign on either side saying ‘Yield to traffic on the bridge’ which has proved totally inadequate.

There are fast sweeping approaches to both sides of Caragh Bridge, and unsuspecting drivers are practically at the bridge before they realise that they are no longer on a two lane highway” stated the Rossbeigh based Councillor Cahill.

“Everybody appears to be in a hurry these days and many drivers have attempted to get on to the bridge first, which can lead to stand-offs, reversals, vehicle damage and even worse. A warning or traffic light system needs to be considered here, to avoid any further accidents and injuries” said Councillor Cahill.

‘A number of locals have contacted me in regard to this matter and I have witnessed first hand 2 serious roadrage incidents on the bridge’ stated Councillor Cahill.

“The frustration felt by many drivers there could be alleviated if a traffic light system was in place giving everybody equal opportunity” added the Deputy Mayor of Kerry.
