Diversions Caused By Bridge Closure
Kildare County Council has ordered the emergency closure of the  Naas/Caragh Road at the Liffey Bridge Crossing to all traffic.

The bridge has closed today, and won't re-open until Monday.

This closure is necessary to carry out essential structural repairs to "defects" on the bridge.

Motorists Urged To Monitor Speed
An average of 30,000 penalty points are issued to those on Kildare's roads for speeding offences every month.

Kildare's Road Safety Officer says this shows that the message that "speed kills" is not getting through to all motorists.

RSO, Declan Keogh, says it is crucial that drivers travel at an appropriate speed.
Athy Motions Deferred
No motions will be heard at the next meeting of the Athy Municipal District.

It is as councillors will be receiving 6 deputations at the November meeting.

They are from Athy & Monasterevin tidy towns groups, the Woodstock Forum, Coneyboro Residents Association, Castledermot Playground Group and representatives of the Monasterevin community.

New motions on local matters are unlikely to be heard until the December meeting
