N81 - Knockroe Bends

The Realignment Scheme involved the upgrade of the N81 National Secondary Road at Knockroe Bend over approximately 1 kilometre.

This bend is situated on the N81 approximately 800m south of Hollywood Cross (Junction of N81 and R756) and approximately 11km south of Blessington between two sections of relatively good alignment and has been the scene of numerous collisions. 

The scheme was prepared to improve road standards, to implement an improvement in the road safety performance of this section of the N81 and reduce the occurrence of collisons by realigning and widening the road at this location.

Traffic is now diverted onto the new alignment of the N81 at Knockroe Bend Realignment and scheme is complete
