Re: Re: Cork’s 500m euro North Ring Motorway
That’s my opinion also to an extent.
It’s M50 part II. However, Cork County Council are fiercely protective of their green-belt area through which part of this huge motorway will be constructed.
Currently Cork has approx. 7 dedicated green-routes (buses, emergency vehicles and taxis only) – but these only serve suburbs of Mahon, Bishopstown and Ballyvolane. Much more needs to be done.
Currently, the suburban rail network only serves Glounthane and Cobh – the Midelton line is under development. Plans are only under feasibilty stage for Ballincollig and Bishopstown suburbs. Perhaps PPP could help? But judging by the Cork School of Music…that’s suspect.
The loop is needed, but the route???
