Work on the Garraunakilla Market Regeneration Project in Ennis will lead to the closure of both Market Street and Market Place from Monday next for a 12-week period.
The closure of both roads from Barrack Street to Market Place, including Drumbiggle Road junction, is to facilitate the construction of new roads and footpaths, including diversion of overhead services and the provision of new sewers.
Municipal District engineer, Eamon O’Dea said that as a result of the road closure, Summerhill will be temporarily open to two-way traffic, with parking restrictions on Summerhill.
Mr O’Dea outlined that access to Summerhill, Market Place, Lower Market Street, Cabey’s Lane and Lower Parnell Street will be via Summerhill, with exit through Cabey’s Lane and Summerhill.
He said existing signs and road markings on Summerhill would be removed and adjusted during the temporary road closure.
Pedestrian access, Mr O’Dea explained, would be provided on Market Street and Market Place through the works area adjacent to the businesses and pedestrian access would be provided from Lower Drumbiggle Road to Market Street and Market Place.
“Temporary road signs will be placed along Carmody Street, Kilrush Road and Drumbiggle Road identifying the access points to the Market,” he added.
