Roadworks are expected to take one day.

Kildare County Council has advised that the L81206 Collinstown is closed today Thursday, 28 April 2022 to Friday, 29 April 2022, and will be completed within normal working hours, 8am to 6pm.

The closure is to facilitate ground investigation consisting of a single borehole with insitu testing to determine the overburden and rock depths and characteristics for the design of the proposed DART+ West scheme. 

The works will be undertaken within a 6m x 3m work zone.

Duration is expected to be 1 day.

Road to be Closed


To complete the proposed works the portion of carriageway to the south of the existing level crossing will be closed.  This is the local road between the R148 at the Intel side of the Grand Canal to a point 1km to the south at the junction with the R405. Local access will be provided, and pedestrian access through the level crossing maintained.

Diversion Routes

Westbound vehicles travelling along the R148 will be diverted past the L81206 and take the next left turn at the Royal Canal Way, over Pike Bridge. They will then continue south along Ballygoran View and then turn left onto the R405 eastbound. They will then take the next left onto Obelisk Lane and continue on to the L81206 where the diversion ends.

Eastbound vehicles travelling along the R148 will be diverted past the L81206 towards Leixlip. At the first roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the R449 southbound. At the next roundabout they will then take the 3rd exit, heading west towards the L81206 where the diversion ends.

Diversionary routes will be clearly signposted, as agreed with the Council and An Garda Síochána. Emergency access and restricted local access will be maintained.
