Re: Re: cork docklands
Yea, it’s been granted permission. With five conditions attached, however I hear they are fairly minor.
It’ll now be all about the funding I suppose. The bridge would work as an economic stimulus providing jobs during construction. Assuming it’s going to take a few years to complete, it might be ready in time for this supposed upturn in the economy. No one thinks the Dokclands will proceed as quickly as envisaged first day but at least the go ahead for the bridge will mean the marker has been laid down and we are moving ahead.
I’d be very annoyed to hear the Gov procastinate on this matter citing the economy and then turn around and move ahead with Luas and Dart extensions in Dublin.
Procrastinate ? Michael “Debt free Cork Airport” McGrath has promised that the Sarsfield and Bandon Road flyovers will begin later this year – The only chance of that is if he heads out there himself with a few shovels and wheelbarrows.There will be no money for bridges until well after the next election.Let it proceed slowly on a sustainable level.Look at Dublins monoheight borefest as an example of what not to do.
