AtkinsRéalis was delighted to attend the recent opening of the Kilcullen Road Active Travel scheme in Naas, along with colleagues from the National Transport Authority, Kildare County Council and the main contractor, John Cradock Limited.

Minister of State in the Department of Transport and the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, Jack Chambers TD officially opened the scheme in the presence of the Cathaoirleach of the County of Kildare, Councillor Daragh Fitzpatrick.

Appointed by Kildare County Council as lead engineering consultants for the scheme, AtkinsRealis provided all multidisciplinary services through Phases 2 to 7.

The scheme forms part of plans to develop high-quality cycle routes within the Naas area, as outlined in the NTA’s Cycle Network Plan (CNP) for the Greater Dublin Area (GDA).

Kieran Boyle, Technical Director at AtkinsRéalis Ireland said: “This is an exemplar active travel scheme combining high quality facilities for pedestrians and cyclists with significant public realm improvements. It supports the local community in choosing to travel more sustainably in a safe and connected way.”
