Cork County Council is delighted to have the opportunity to develop a Boardwalk on Mallow Bridge. The Boardwalk is funded by Cork County Council and the EU through the Designated Urban Centres Grant Scheme, managed by the Southern Regional Assembly through which €1 million has been allocated.
The construction of the boardwalk on the western spandrel wall of the bridge will accommodate pedestrian footfall across the bridge. This will facilitate the removal of the existing footpath and allow for the incorporation of an additional traffic turning lane to improve vehicular traffic flow across the bridge.
Traffic studies and modelling show that the Boardwalk and associated extra traffic lane will produce significant journey time reductions with associated sustainability, environmental and economic benefits to Mallow.
The Boardwalk will also provide for a significant shared space for cyclists and pedestrians and will reinforce the link between the residential southern area of Mallow and the town centre.
The works will include the relocation of the existing War of Independence Monument from its existing location on the bridge parapet to a safer location in a new amenity area on the northern approach to the bridge. This will allow for the monument to be viewed in a purpose-built area separated from live vehicular traffic.
