N72 Stagmount Bends Road Improvement Scheme Part 8 Public Consultation

The N72 Stagmount Bends Road Improvement Scheme is located 3.5km east of Barraduff and 6.5km west of Rathmore, between the townlands of Gortnahaneboy West and Gortnahaneboy East, Rathmore, Co. Kerry. This road is a National Secondary Route with a 100Kph speed limit. The existing carriageway cross-section is a single carriageway without hard-shoulders and has both a poor horizontal and vertical alignment.

The primary objectives of the scheme are:

  • Upgrade 1.15km of the existing section of road to a Type 2 Single (8.0m wide) Carriageway (S2), predominantly off-line.
  • Upgrade the existing junction on the western end of the scheme to the area known locally as Ceannearagh.
  • Provide a new junction on the western end of the scheme to access the old N72.
  • Carry out all other works associated with the scheme.
  • Carry out these works having regard to the environment of the area.

Burial Grounds

There are 153 Burial Grounds under the control of Kerry County Council. The Council employs part –time caretakers to look after the upkeep of many of these burial grounds.

It is Council policy to work with and involve local communities in the maintenance and upkeep of local burial grounds. Kerry County Council currently works with and gives financial aid to 50 Local Burial Ground Committees.

It is important to note that 92 of the County’s 153 Burial Grounds are classified as Archaeological sites and, accordingly, are protected by the National Monuments Act.   Any works to be undertaken in these Burial Grounds require advance approval from the Council’s engineering and archaeological staff.
