Regional & Local Roads Projects – Part 8 Planning & Section 38

 

Cork County Council is delighted to have the opportunity to develop the Kanturk Link Road. The new link road situated between Bluepool Upper and the Mill Road will improve connectivity and access to Kanturk town centre and to the proposed new National School on Mill Road. The project is being funded by the Cork County Council and the Department of Rural and Community Development through the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund as part of Project Ireland 2040

The proposed works include the construction of approximately 450 linear metres of new carriageway, installation of footpaths and cycle tracks, surface water drainage, installation of public lighting, and ducting.  The new footpaths and cycle tracks, will encourage active travel. The provision of the Link Road will provide a safer environment for all road users especially for vulnerable road users.

The new Link Road will facilitate the future development of lands in the area and reduce traffic congestion in Kanturk town centre.

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.
