The following are the projects which have been submitted by Cork County Council for funding under two new government grants, the Urban Regeneration & Development Fund and the Rural Regeneration & Development Fund. The Urban fund is targeted specifically at cities and larger towns in Metropolitan areas. The Rural fund is targeted at towns outside of these areas and with populations of less than 10,000.

At a public information session in the PACE Centre this evening, Irish Water clarified that it intends to go ahead with the planned total closure of the R610 at Passage West library on Monday. The closure won’t be implemented until 9.30/10am that first day. Anyone living in the vicinity of the works will have to find parking as close as they can, using the closed road if they have to. If anyone trying to access Dr. Shannon’s or Dr. O’Flynn’s surgery is especially incapacitated, ring Carol Harris (086-1449548) and access will be arranged. They will dig for 90 metres by the library and they will take another 20 metres either side of that for movement of construction machinery.
A representative of Bus Eireann was at this evening’s meeting. He confirmed that the 223 would take the Rochestown Inn – Carrigmahon Hill route and although there may be issues in coinciding with shuttle bus connections, they will work it the best they can. No clear answer yet on private school bus runs but it appears that the Rochestown College bus is considering taking the same Carrigmahon Hill route to the Monastery. Kearney’s is currently inspecting the route to see if it is passable for their double decker. The Douglas Gaelscoil bus is likely to take its usual route but will go from Pembroke Wood to Church Hill via the Back Road/Fair Hill.
Irish Water will monitor the back road to the Monastery to see how bad it gets but they are not committing to traffic management on it. There will be three sets of lights on the Back Road/Fair Hill. Signage at the Rochestown Church roundabout will tell HGVs heading for Passage West/Ringaskiddy to use the N28. They are not to use the local roads.
Irish Water has promised to in future give a full week’s notice of any future meetings or lodging of road closure licence applications. They have committed to funding a decent marketing plan for local businesses. They distributed another information leaflet which you can access here: IW information sheet, 10-08-2018.
There are an additional 7 weeks of closures to come on the Cork Road, 5 of which are full closures. Another 5 weeks of a full closure is expected for Glenbrook – Lucia Place. It is not likely to happen until after Christmas and they will have another meeting about that when the redesign for that stretch is finalised.
