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.

  1. Will they make the same mistake and make it IMPOSSIBLE to make the turn from High Street into Kieran St for service vehicles like deliveries, Waste Collection, Service Vehicles, Fire Trucks, Ambulances? Hmmm would not surpise me, they do it every time.
    A vehicle coming down High Street needs to stick to the kerb out side DV8 Store to make the turn into Kieran Street. That kerb area needs to be clear, not filled with Cones, or Flower Pots that make it impossible to make that turn.
    Hope someone brings that to there attention asap

    It should be a permanent feature. And to allow car parking down one side of the High Street to bring the life back to the City centre. KKCO have taken the sole out of the City by only allowing Taxi’s and loading bays in the City.

  3. One way system should be kept as a permanent feature. Crazy to not have done something like this sooner. Far too many narrow roads in the centre that are just not suitable for two way traffic. Should be permanent one way, along with more space provided for bikes, pedestrians, etc.
