The colour in the city’s roundabouts can now be appreciated. the Ring road is a blaze of colour with each roundabout themed so that each is a unique experience. Roundabouts are also signed to aid orientation. the ring road forms a green parkway extending from the Waterford rd to the Castlecomer road. sections of the ring road have also been planted with wild flowers. The extensive city pedestrian and cycle way network has been completed along much of the route.
The roundabout planting also includes trees and permanent planting to provide colour through out the year. Extensive tree planting has taken place all along the city Ring road, providing screening and cover.
Coordinated and landscape architect designed roundabouts are being upgraded throughout the city. The planting of our 16 city roundabouts continue. There are still some sponsorships available. For further information contact the KKB (see our contacts section on this site) or contact the City parks department at Kilkenny County hall, John st. Kilkenny.The roundabouts create colourful vistas through out the city.
The distinct and varied designs are adjusted to suit the location. they also act as colourful references in our compact urban fabric.
