Southbound traffic from the Fethard Road roundabout will be diverted west along the N24. At the Cashel Road roundabout traffic will take the first exit onto the Cashel Road.

Northbound traffic travelling towards the Fethard Road roundabout will be diverted onto Kickham Street and Queen Street and turn right onto the Cashel Road. At the Cashel Road roundabout traffic will take the third exit and travel east on the N24.

A map showing details of the proposed road closure and alternative routes may be inspected at the offices of Clonmel Borough Council at the Town Hall in Parnell Street.
