Traffic calming measures to be reviewed in glounthaune

Fine Gael councillor Anthony Barry

Cork County Council and Cobh Municipality are to work together to find a solution that would improve traffic safety between the junction of the Old Cork Road and the exit to Little Island.
Councillor Anthony Barry told Cobh Municipality’s November sitting that 3 lanes of traffic are entering the junction at rush hour.
“You have traffic from Glanmire, traffic from Glounthaune all heading towards Little Island and then you have the people wanting to head straight on.”
The Fine Gael Councillor went on to say that “huge speeds are being used on the Old Cork Road. There is a load of traffic on the old N25. There are particular issues from Glounthaune Church down to Fitzpatrick’s shop, that’s an area you have a lot of pedestrians” he said.
Ger O’Hora senior engineer Cork County Council told the meeting “that’s a matter for the Cork County Council road design office. I will talk to them on that matter. Morning and evenings that’s an extremely busy junction anyway. You are talking about the industrial area of little island all the will in the world there will be congestion there” he said.
