Cork County Council has announced a significant milestone in the development of the Cork to Kinsale Greenway with the appointment of consultant, Arup, as technical advisors to oversee the initial design phases of the project from Phase 1 Concept and Feasibility to Phase 4 Statutory Process.
Funded by Transport Infrastructure Ireland, the €2.6million contract offers a significant opportunity to develop a safe, scenic, off-road route that will connect communities between Cork and Kinsale with a convenient and enjoyable means of travel. It will also support broader West Cork greenway plans and will connect with developments such as the Cork City to Viaduct Greenway.
Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Frank O’Flynn welcomed the commencement of the first stage of the project,
The preliminary phase of the project will go through various stages such as feasibility, route option selection, public consultation and ultimately the statutory process before progressing to construction.
Chief Executive of Cork County Council, Valerie O’Sullivan, added
