The Mall and Bridge Street areas in Tralee, from the junction with Russell Street, will remain closed to traffic from today until next November to facilitate the installation of a new paved surface.

It is part of a €1.7 million investment by Kerry County Council to improve the centre of the town and create a new public space on the mall.

The local authority stresses that throughout the works the Mall and Bridge Street areas will remain fully open for business and pedestrian access.
