Cork County Council, in partnership with Fáilte Ireland, is currently planning the development of the Dursey Island Cable Car in Beara, West Cork. Roughan & O’Donovan Consulting Engineers have been commissioned to provide design and statutory planning services for the proposed development.
Overview of the Project
The proposed development will see the replacement of the existing cableway using state-of-the-art technology and the construction of a new visitor centre, featuring a café and interpretive exhibition spaces. It is proposed to replace the existing 70-space car park with new parking facilities, including 100 individual spaces and a coach bus bay. Additionally, it is proposed to carry out some localised road improvements along the R572 between Bealbarnish Gap and the Cable Car, in order to accommodate two-way traffic at suitably spaced passing points.
Have Your Say
Cork County Council is holding a Community Workshop at which the proposed design of the development will be presented to the public, and interested parties will be invited to make submissions on the development in question. Staff from Cork County Council and the Project Design Team at Roughan & O’Donovan Consulting Engineers will be on hand to address any queries. The Workshop will be held at:
The Eccles Hotel, Glengarriff, Co. Cork
