Proposed Zebra Crossing Safety Improvement Works

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994, as amended by the Public Transport Regulation Act, 2009 (Section 46), Cork City Council hereby gives notice of its intention to carry out the following road safety improvement works in the interest of the safety and convenience of users of Grattan Street, Cork City in the vicinity of Cork Educate Together National School. It is proposed to carry out works to upgrade the existing Zebra crossing outside Cork Educate Together National School to a raised Zebra crossing. Specifically, the works will comprise of the following:

  • Construction of a flat top speed ramp at the realigned crossing location
  • Installation of flashing amber Belisha beacons, with associated electrical system,
  • Alterations to the footpaths at either side of the crossing,
  • Ancillary improvements such as: replacement and additional road markings, road traffic signage, public lighting, and road drainage will also be implemented where necessary.

In accordance with the Habitats Directive, an Appropriate Assessment (AA) Screening has been carried out on the proposed scheme, in relation to any potential impacts upon the Cork Harbour Special Protection Area [Site No. 004030] and the Great Island Channel Special Area of Conservation [Site No. 001058]. The findings of the AA screening noted that no significant effects on any Natura 2000 sites are likely and it was not necessary to undertake any further stage of the Appropriate Assessment process. In addition, the proposed scheme has been screened to determine whether an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required and it has been concluded that there will be no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment arising from the proposed scheme and that an EIA is not required.

Plans and particulars of the proposed works will be available for public inspection from Wednesday 30th of November 2022 until Friday 06th of January 2023.
