Proposed Road Safety Improvement Works on L2779 Road at Kerry Pike Village
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 the L2779 road in the vicinity of Clogheen-Kerry Pike National School in Kerry Pike. It is proposed to carry out works to upgrade the existing “uncontrolled” pedestrian crossing 65m west of Clogheen-Kerry Pike National School to a raised Zebra crossing. Specifically, the works will comprise of the following:
• Construction of a raised road surface at the crossing
• Installation of flashing amber Belisha beacons, with associated electrical system,
• Alterations to the footpaths at either side of the crossing,
• Installation of road signage and road markings, and
• All other associated ancillary site works.
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 scheme, including an Appropriate Assessment Screening Report and an Environmental Impact Assessment Screening Report, will be available for inspection from Friday 25th June 2021 until Tuesday 27th July 2021:
- electronically via this Online Consultation Portal. Documents available to download and view from the panel to the right.
