Home Forums Ireland Look at de state of Cork, like! Re: *updates*


๐Ÿ™‚ The DAA have seemingly granted requests by the CAA and others to provide air-bridges at Cork’s new airport terminal. The bridges had been cast in doubt after penny-pinching exercises by the DAA and Dept. of Transport. However only 2 of the originally planned 3 bridges will be provided – allowing for a saving of just under 400,000euro (wow! :rolleyes: ) Provision was made in the airport design to facilitate a northern extension (pier) home to 3 additional bridges subject to demand and airport capacities – but this Phase 2 element is not on the cards for the forseeable future. The 2 bridges will be secured for the interm, with an option by CAA to purchase the 3rd bridge at a future point from its own funding. Though it’s not what was promised, its a small victory, and it represents what was undoubtedly an uphill struggle for CAA Chairman Joe Gantly, so well done sir.

๐Ÿ˜ฎ Paul Montgomery has been granted his application to let apartments at his Victoria Mills development on a short-term summer residiency basis. Each apartment will be let individually. Phase 2 of Victoria Mills will commence primary construction in late May/early June – after UCC Summer Exams.

And I know I promised some info and images on the Capitol Cineplex’s redevelopment – but I’m dying sick at the moment and will get around to it as soon as I’m able. Curse the flu virus! I dunno how I got it, I haven’t been hanging around any WHO supported labs. ๐Ÿ˜€
