1. Traffic travelling from Carrick-on-Suir town centre towards Ballylynch/Tinvane area of Carrick-on-Suir & towards Pilltown/Mooncoin will be diverted from the N24 onto New Street Carrick-on-Suir & across Dillon Bridge and then follow the R680 to Fiddown Bridge and then rejoin the N24 at Fiddown, Co.Kilkenny.
2. Traffic travelling from Ballylynch/Tinvane area of Carrick-on- Suir & from Pilltown & Mooncoin will be diverted off the N24 at Fiddown and across Fiddown Bridge onto the R680 towards Carrick-on-Suir and then across Dillon Bridge onto Main Street Carrick-on-Suir to rejoin the N24 at O’Mahoney Avenue mini-roundabout in the town.
The above diversion routes using the Regional Road R680 to cater for heavy vehicles will be clearly sign-posted. Other routes using local roads will be available but will not be signposted.
The purpose of this road closure is to facilitate works by Irish Rail to replace the existing railway bridge in Carrick-on-Suir over the N24 with a new bridge at a higher level in order to reduce the number of bridge strikes that have occurred on a regular basis.
Emergency access will be provided at all times within Carrick-on-Suir via a private link road between Cregg Road & Hawthorn Crescent. It is also planned to have a shuttle-bus service operating for pedestrians on this link road for period of the road closure
