Temporary road closure - L8950 Abbey Road (link road to N51), Navan


**UPDATE 18/06/2019 ** -  Closure of Abbey Rd Link is extended to 19th July

Notice is hereby given that Meath County Council has made an order to close the L8950 Abbey Road (link road to N51) Navan, Co Meath, between it's junction with the N51 and it's junction with the L8950 Abbey Road.

This closure is required to facilitate the N51/R147 Junction Upgrade works.


Works have been extended to 19th July 2019.

Alternative Route:

Via Abbey Road (L8950) to O'Growney Terrace (R895) to the N51 and vice versa.

Diversion signs will be in place.

The works will upgrade the layout of the junction (as shown below) to include improved pedestrian and cycle facilities on all four arms of the junction. The revised junction layout will also prohibit the left turning movements from the R147 onto the Abbey Road link and from the Abbey road link onto the N51 towards Kells (the right turns from the Abbey Road link onto the R147 and onto the Abbey Road link from the N51 will continue to be prohibited). The safety improvement works at the junction are due to commence on 2nd April, 2019 and are estimated to last approximately 12 weeks.

It is important to note that these closures are required not just to facilitate the works, but also to help provide safe passage for Pedestrians through the junction during the construction phase.

We are continuing to liaise with the Contractor in relation to finalising the programme of works and it is anticipated that some night time works will be required. Details of these will be advertised on our website.
