Lawless delighted to welcome opening of Sallins bypass following years of campaigning
08 April 2021
Fianna Fáil TD for Kildare North, James Lawless, has said that after many year’s campaigning and the long wait through planning and then construction, the Sallins bypass is completed and will open to traffic this Friday (April 9th ) at 11am.
Deputy Lawless commented, “I am absolutely thrilled to welcome the opening of the Sallins bypass. This marks the completion of a €110m investment in the area which has already seen the motorway between Naas and Newbridge extended to three lanes on either side and the addition of a new interchange off the N7 onto the Naas ring road.
“I am delighted to see these infrastructural improvements become reality having campaigned for them for over twenty years. This investment in local road infrastructure will provide immediate relief to my own village of Sallins which has been beset by traffic for decades. It will also greatly improve motorway access and traffic flows for residents all around Naas, Clane, Straffan, Prosperous and beyond.
“It will not only benefit the locality, but the greater Leinster region also and I would like to congratulate all those who made this project a reality,” concluded Deputy Lawless.
