Ward and Burke are proposing two complete road closures in #PassageWest. The first is to lay the sewer in the road from Glenbrook Wharf – Lucia Place during July/August and the second is to lay it from the Town Hall – Oysterhaven Boats (ish) during September/October. They say they need these closures to lay the sewer. In addition to this, Ward and Burke already have permission to close the Back Road for July and other partial closures between Passage West, Glenbrook and Monkstown.
The presentation given by Ward & Burke to councillors on these proposed complete road closures is here:
Passage West Road Closure Presentation
The first road closure was advertised today. Because it will have a significant effect on businesses, residents and travel, there is much concern about it. The only opportunity to have these concerns heard and worked around is to make a submission to the road closure application. A petition outlining those concerns has been distributed to the businesses today and will be collected on Tuesday for forwarding to Cork County Council. The text of that petition is here:
You can make your own submission to Cork County Council if you wish by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to Director of Services, Roads & Transportation, Cork County Council, The Courthouse, Skibbereen, Co. Cork. The closing date for receipt of submissions is Wednesday, 20th June. There is no fee for making the submission.
