Re: Re: Developments in Cork
i was coming from the point of view of the new port would be a huge escalation in size and would be right adjacent to the residential area. The pharma plants have sat there for years and have more commuter traffic coming in and out of them, not HGV’s.
The Bord can condition all they want, but its too premature I think. They might be able to grant it with a huge number of conditions but who will enforce them? County Council? I dont think so.
The finalised N28 route is going to need consultation, traffic management plans, construction plans etc. All of which cant be sorted with a condition.
Given the current environment and the NDP looking like it will be stripped of funds, I wouldnt hold my breath on the N28.
Residents of Ringaskiddy must be fully aware of the area that the live in and an extension of the port was always on the cards for years and plans by Port of Cork to open a link to Northern Spain will actually reduce truck movements around the country.
I knew a fellah living in Little Island and started to object to Cork Main Drainage and their treatment plant there as he could see all the pipes heading his way.
A bit late when you are living in Little Island Industrial zone etc.
