Kilkenny City’s new one-way system to come into effect this evening
The temporary one-way system in Kilkenny city centre to aid social distancing will come into effect from this evening after the local authority decided to bring the measures forward.
It was originally planned to commence the new traffic flow system from next Monday morning, but to allow the public time to get accustomed to the new system before people go to work next Monday, the decision was made by Kilkenny County Council to bring the commencement forward by 60 hours.
The temporary one-way system is just one of a number of measures being introduced by the council to facilitate public health requirements on social distancing as more and more restrictions due to Covid-19 are being eased.
The one-way system has been devised to ensure that people can safely visit the city by providing an additional 1.5mts added space for pedestrians.
The areas affected will be John Street, Kieran St, James’s St to High St, and Ormonde St. One-way restrictions will be in place between 9am and 9pm each day and signage will be in place on approach roads to the City to advise visitors of the new traffic flow arrangements.
