COMMUTERS between Kenmare and Glengarriff are having to find alternative routes between 9.30am and 5pm until March 6, due to roadworks.
Kerry County Council have confirmed that the N71 at Releagh, Bunane, will be closed from now until March 6 (Friday).
It will be closed from 9.30am until 5pm, Monday to Friday, to facilitate road works associated with the N71 Releagh Road Widening Scheme.
Motorists travelling between Kenmare and Glengarriff during those times are advised to use the alternative R571 / R574 / R572 route via Lauragh, the Healy Pass and Adrigole.
Access will, however, be provided for in the event of any emergency services needing to gain entry.
