This will be from it's junction with Lavitt's Quay and Kyrl's Quay to facilitate the erection of the new pedestrian bridge. Limerick traffic coming from the west will be diverted onto Sheares St, Washington St and into St. Patrick's St which will be two way for the duration of the work's. Sign posting will be in place.

Cornmarket Street Footbridge

Postby lexington » Wed Aug 18, 2004 8:33 pm

Originally designed to celebrate the turn of the Millenium, the Cornmarket Street footbridge was set in place at a cost of 2.2m euro to CCC on August the 14th 2004. Now designated as part of the Cork 2005 celebrations, it will form part of the 1st stage in the redevelopment of Cornmarket Street as a more 'cultural extension' of Patrick's Street. The new bridge, yet to be opened to the public or officially titled was designed by McGarry Ni Éanaigh Architects with Muir Associates Consulting Engineers. Construction work was provided by Ascon.

It also coincides nicely with the redevelopment of Camden Quay and Lavitts Quay.

Any news on the examiner offices proposed site? Is it still for sale?

The Irish Examiner HQ site on Lavitts Quay has, according to Mr. Roger Flack of Hamilton Osbourne King, received an offer - of which terms are still being finalised, but no official tender has been agreed as of yet. The site is still open to offers and the trustees are expected to consider adopting a final bid date soon.

See 'Look at the de state of Cork, like!' thread for more information.
