Plans For Carrigaline Traffic And Public Realm
What’s happening with the plans to upgrade the public realm and Eastern corridor in Carrigaline? asked Cllrs Liam O’Connor (FG) and Cathaoirleach Seamus McGrath (FF) at the monthly meeting of Cork County Council’s Carrigaline Municipal District (MD).
Cllr O’Connor expressed the hope that both teams from the council engaged in the Traffic and Transportation Study and the Public Realm Enhancement Plan (TPREP) were working together to ensure there was one vision for Carrigaline.
In agreement, Cllr McGrath said the MD agreed last summer with a plan to improve flow on the Eastern corridor, in particular widening corners and lengthening turning lanes between Bothar Guidel and Church Road.
‘There are easy wins in terms of improving the traffic light junction but it hasn’t progressed because consultants haven’t been appointed to do the detailed design which is very disappointing because we could get under way with this. I would like to know where are we regarding this and the overall plan’, he added.
MD officer Noelle Desmond replied that MD officials had met with the project managers for both major schemes and undertook to get a briefing for councillors.
‘Welcome to County Cork’ signs at the approaches to Carrigaline and Passage West requested by Cllrs Audrey Buckley (FF) and Marcia D’Alton (Ind) who noted the ‘Welcome to Cork City’ sign on the N28 at Carr’s Hill.
