Re: Re: Developments in Cork
As I understand it, the location isn’t all that historic. The toll house was only moved to its current location around a hundred years ago. I’m not sure about the trough.
I don’t really see it as too controversial as they are retained in the area.
I haven’t seen the plan in great detail and as I don’t live in that part of Cork, I haven’t paid too much attention to it. The one thing that stood out at me was that there was no pedestrian crossing on the city side of St Lukes on the Ballyhooly Rd. I though we’d got beyond this idea that ir’s OK to ask people to cross three roads when they only want to cross one. Also, parking looked like it was allowed very close to the junction on Wellington Road.
