Corbally Link Road (Opening June 22nd) 🙂
Progress on site with civil engineering works for the construction of the Corbally Link Road is proceeding on schedule and its is anticipated that this new piece of road infrastructure will be open by the 22nd of June 2007. As can be seen in the attached photographs progress has been helped by the recent good weather and Asphalting of the road surface and bridge deck should commence next week.
The site of the Corbally Link road lies to the east of Kings Island and this vital piece of road infrastructure will link the existing R463 Corbally Road at the Grove Island Centre with the R445 Dublin Road at the Park Road junction. The R463 is the main access route into Limerick City from Corbally which is a major residential suburb of Limerick City and also from the greater south-east County Clare area. This new link road will divert a substantial volume of traffic travelling to the Dublin Road, Tipperary Road, Childers Road,The University ,away from Athlunkard Street Lights and the Abbey Bridge and should help to improve journey times. The R445 is the new road classification for the former N7 and this links the City centre with the Parkway, Castletroy and the N7 Dublin Road at Annacotty.
Phase I of the Corbally Link Road which comprised of approx 400 metres of roadway was completed in 2003 by Limerick City Council in partnership with The Kings Island Development Company. Phase 2 which is the completion of the scheme is been completed under this current contract and consists of:
(1) A new bridge over the Park Canal
(2) Approx. 500 metres of new road carriageway
(3) Approx. 250 metres of carriageway widening and improvements on Park Road
(4) Construction of footpaths and cycle lane along route including tie-ins to the recently refurbished Canal paths.
(5) Improvements to Junctions on the R445 and the R463
