In accordance with the provisions of Section 75 of the above Act and Article 12 of the Roads Regulations, 1994, Laois County Council hereby serves notice that it proposes to temporarily close the M7 motorway to through traffic on the eastbound off-ramp at Junction 16 and on the eastbound off-ramp at Junction 15, on the nights of the 10th July 2017, and the 17th July 2017, to facilitate pavement maintenance to be carried out.

The works will be undertaken utilising a phased approach and diversions, with diverted traffic directed to follow signage along an alternative route. Only one diversion will be put in place at any one time between adjacent junctions. The closures are planned for the following areas:

• the eastbound off-ramp of Junction 16; and
• the eastbound off-ramp of Junction 15.
Diversions are to be put in place between 22:00 to 06:00.
Maps of the diversion routes are available for inspection at www.laois.ie and Áras an Chontae, Portlaoise.
