Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Also the development is expected to result in a HUGE volume of Container traffic (possibly 1 truck a minute) being added to the local road infrastructure, namely the N28… with a significant amount of this traffic heading towards the tunnel. including empty trucks returning to Ringaskiddy for container collection.
i found the traffic estimates for the construction phase of the new terminal and the first 4 months of construction are estimated as having the largest amount of truck movement. I’m open to correction and apologies if I have made an error but it appears the estimate is that there will be approx one truck every 2 mins for 8 hours a day 6 days a week – this will decrease to about one every 4 minutes for the next 12 months of construction and then one every 7 minutes. Lot of trucks.
