Traffic restrictions / Water disruption at ballynare cross - UIsce Éireann tie-ins for kcc
Mains Water and sewer tie-in connections will be made during the week of the 17th April 2023 for the Community Centre development project at Ballynare Cross.
As the tie-in points are close to the centre of the cross roads, there will be traffic restrictions with traffic lights setup.
The work is being done by a contractor on behalf of Uisce Éireann and is targeted to be complete by Friday 21st April 2023.
The work was originally planned for Easter week to minimise disruption to school related traffic, but was moved due to contractor resource constraints.
Meath County Council, on behalf of Uisce Éireann, have advised of water disruption on Thursday, 20th April 2023 from 10.00am to 3.00pm for customers in Killeany, Kilgraigue and Harristown.

Kilcloon Community Centre apologises for any inconvenience this work may cause.

Kilcloon awarded €100,000 grant funding
As Phase 1 of the Kilcloon Community Centre nears completion, KCC is delighted to announce that Kilcloon has been awarded €100,000 of grant funding from Meath County Council and the Department of Rural and Community Development. The announcement was made today by Minister Heather Humphreys.
This grant is the first of its kind to be awarded to Kilcloon.
KCC applied for funding to support the development of the Village Square at Kilcloon Community Centre, including the construction of a recreational space and landscaping.
The Village Square and its amenities will be fully inclusive, accessible for all, and cater for all ages in our community. It will provide for a much needed amenity and multi-purpose space for a wide range of users of all ages with active and passive spaces for socialising, exercising and meeting.
Project Update - July 2021
We previously communicated that Tenders for Phase 1 of the Kilcloon Community Centre Project had been issued to prospective bidders in our May ’21 Project Update.
Phase 1 will enable the development of the Community Field at Ballynare Cross for the Community Centre and housing. The work consists of the internal road, footpaths and lighting and underground services including sewer, mains water, surface water drainage, power and broadband.
During May and June, tenders were received, evaluated and scored.
We are pleased to announce that the Contract for Phase 1 Construction has now been awarded. The appointed contractor is Rossmore Civils Ltd. Rossmore Civils specialise in Building and Civils infrastructure works and are well positioned to deliver Phase 1 of the project in a timely and quality focussed way.
The commencement of the Phase 1 work on the site is a significant and long-awaited milestone and achievement. Completion of Phase 1 will enable the construction of the Community Centre and also the housing on the site.
Construction activity will start on site in early August. The initial work will involve making the new entrance to the site close to Ballynare Cross on the road to Kilcloon and Scoil Oilibhéir Naofa.
The timing of the works is optimum, as the bulk of the work will be complete during the school holidays. We are currently aligning with the contractor on the detailed program of the work, and this will include topics such as working hours, site security and access control, and traffic management and truck movement to and from the site.
Our next update will provide a summary of the Phase 1 works program and timelines.
The sale of sites to fund the project continues. Of the 8 sites in the 1st phase, 2 now have full planning permission, 3 have submitted for full planning and there are booking deposits on the remaining 3. We are now opening the 2nd phase on the 5 remaining sites for sale.
For information on sites for sale, please contact Leinster Property.
