Motorists can expect further delays on a busy N25 as road works are set to continue over the coming months.
Long queues, congestion and severe delays can be expected.
Transport Infrastructure Ireland say the final surface course in Killeagh is scheduled to begin on the first week of September and is expected to take at least a week to complete.
Traffic chaos has caused misery among motorists and the business community in Killeagh since works commenced last October- with Cllrs even voicing their woes.
The project was due to be complete by the end of May however the discovery of human bones had stalled the works while archaeological investigations were carried out.
Planned works on the N25 in Castlemartyr to upgrade overlay and footpaths go to tender this week with work expected to commence in October.
The Local Authority says the project includes the upgrading of the junction on the Mogeely side of the village at the bridge to improve pedestrian facilities.
Re-surfacing works are also to take place at Ballyvergan Youghal, at the start of the Youghal bypass.
These works are expected to commence next month and last up to three weeks, leading to more traffic chaos along the N25.
The Local Authority have asked Dairygold, Mogeely to stump up almost €300,000 to help with some of the works.
Under conditions attached to last week’s granting of planning to increase cheese production facilities at the Mogeely site, the authority have requested a development contribution of €288,000.
The monies are to be paid in two lump sums at least one month before commencing development of the area.
The development contributions are to be made towards the upgrading of the junction in Mogeely village and towards pedestrian facilities at the N25 junction in Castlemartyr.
Part of the planning approval conditions state construction traffic must avoid use of the junction with the N25 at Castlemartyr during the peak traffic hours of 7:30am – 9:30am Monday to Friday.
