Proposed Revised Junction Layout at Newhall Crossroads, Newhall, Naas

Kildare County Council intend to close the central median at the Newhall Crossroads junction on the R445 (Naas – Newbridge Road).  This junction currently facilitates access between Caragh/ Sallins to the north of the R445 and the Ladytown, Lewistown, Clownings area to the south of the R445.

The result of the proposed closure will be that traffic coming from the Sallins direction will have to drive towards Naas to the ‘bundle of sticks’ roundabout before returning to the Newhall Crossroads in order to continue their journey, an extra distance of approx 5 kilometres.  Similarly traffic coming from Ladytown will have to drive in the direction of Newbridge before turning at Toughers roundabout and returning to the Newhall Crossroads.

Plans and particulars of the proposed scheme will be available for inspection or purchase at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy during normal opening hours from Tuesday 17 July 2012 until Thursday 30 August 2012 at Kildare County Council, Roads, Transportation and Public Safety Department.  Plans and particulars of the proposed scheme are also available to view on Kildare County Council’s website.

Submissions or observations may be made in writing on or before 12 noon on Friday 14 September 2012
