Re: Re: Developments in Cork
The lighting for the BErwick fountain (and the lighting for the library side of Grand Parade) is due to be put into place in the next few weeks.
As I said when these pods were first suggested, the idea itself is sound, the site in front of the library is excellent, but the site opposite the Bishop Lucey Park gates is appalling. There’s not enough space for it and it blocks the view of the park.
At the moment, the issue is further exacerbated by the fact that CCC have stuck a Christmas tree between the construction site for the pod and the park gates. This has reduced the footpath width at that point from c. 10 metres, to c. 1 metre. Barely enough space for a couple of people to pass comfortably. Genius!!
I dread to think what will happen when the Pod opens and cafe culture dictates that numerous smoking coffee gulpers are spread across the footpath blocking pedestrians!
Lets take a stand now, before it’s too late! PARKS NOT PODS!!! Get it out of there !!
