Kildare County Council took a significant step in improving regional infrastructure with the KCC Machinery Yard & Regional Salt Barn project in Naas. Clonmel Enterprises Limited skillfully completed this project, creating a new machinery yard and a vital salt barn for keeping roads safe in winter.

What makes this project stand out is the use of 650 meters of Recyfix Monotec, supplied by Galco. This material is known for its strength, corrosive resistance, eco-friendliness, and effective drainage, making it a key feature of the project.

The Salt Barn Project: An Essential Asset for Naas


The Salt Barn in Naas is a vital center for winter road safety. It can hold 23,000 tonnes of salt and house different winter maintenance tools. This barn is essential for keeping roads safe during the tough winter months. It helps Kildare County Council to store and distribute salt more effectively, greatly improving the region’s readiness for winter. Also, its convenient location in Naas makes it easier and quicker to handle winter road maintenance throughout the county.
