The works also included the significant realignment of the existing R445 dual carriageway, provision of key Irish Water Infrastructure and access to Lidl Ireland’s new multi-million euro Regional Distribution Centre. Thanks to our client Lidl Ireland for the opportunity and to Kildare County Council for their assistance in delivering a great project and excellent work by Murphy International.
