“Harbour View Road Junctions Improvement Project

 

PART 8 – PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS 2001

 

 

Description

This application relates to the proposed upgrade of the junction of Harbour View Road and Blarney Road and the junction on Harbour View Road and Tadgh Barry Road..

Both junctions are heavily congested at peak times with inbound delays on the Blarney Road identified as a particular concern.

 

In order to improve safety for all road users and improve the capacity of the junctions, Cork City Council proposes to undertake the following development works:-

  • Redesign of the geometric alignment of the junctions to improve their functionality.
  • Lengthening of the left turning lane from the Blarney Rd onto Harbour View Rd.
  • Provision of new right turning lane on Tadgh Barry Road.
  • Realignment of the cycle lane across the junction on Harbour View Rd/Tadgh Barry Rd.
  •  Provision of left turn and straight ahead/right turn lanes on Harbour View Rd at Blarney Rd Junction.
  • The provision of new traffic signals with interconnectivity between both junctions to improve traffic flows.
  • Traffic calming measures at the entrances to Hollymount Estate
  • Upgrade to pedestrian crossing facilities.
  • Installation of new road markings and signage
  • All necessary accommodation works.
