I am aware that the roadworks are causing great inconvenience to you as residents. As work has slowed this week, I contacted Kildare County Council, Senior Engineer George Willoughby to get an update.

He has advised that the current hold up is due to the preparation required for the laying of tarmac, which will occur next week. He has assured me that the project is on schedule and will be completed before Christmas.

I will continue to monitor the situation.
