Banduff Road Scheme


Notice Under Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994


Pursuant to the provisions of Section 38 of the Road Traffic Act 1994, Cork City Council hereby gives notice of its intention to carry out the following traffic management measures in the interest of the safety and convenience of road users.


Banduff Road Scheme


It is proposed to provide a safe, high quality and continuous route for pedestrians along the Banduff Road that will allow vulnerable road users to commute and access local amenities, along with the provision of new pedestrian crossings and bus stops for new public transport links.


The main elements of the proposed works are:


  • Upgrade of existing and provision of new pedestrian footpaths on both sides of the Banduff Road and enhancements to permeability to abutting areas.
  • Provision of pedestrian crossing facilities including signalised pedestrian crossing, zebra crossing, uncontrolled pedestrian crossings and the use of table top entry ramps on side roads.
  • Provision of new bus stops on Banduff Road for new public transport links.
  • Installation of new energy efficient Public Lighting.


In accordance with the Habitats Directive, an Appropriate Assessment (AA) Screening has been carried out for the project, 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 concluded that no significant effects on any Natura 2000 sites is likely and it was not necessary to undertake any further stage of the Appropriate Assessment process.


In addition, the proposed project has been screened to determine whether an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required and it has been concluded that the proposed development would not be likely to have significant effect on the environment and that the preparation and submission of an environmental impact report is not therefore required.


Details of the proposed works including an Appropriate Assessment screening report and Environmental Impact Assessment screening report are available for inspection online at, at Reception Desk, Cork City Council, City Hall, Anglesea Street, Cork on working days from Friday the 2nd June 2023 to Monday the 3rd July 2023 between 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m and at Mayfield Library, Mayfield, Cork.


Any observations in relation to this proposal should be made electronically through or forwarded in an envelope marked Banduff Road Schemeto Senior Engineer, Infrastructure Development, City Hall, Anglesea Street, Cork. Final date for submissions is 5.00 p.m. on Monday the 3rd July 2023.


All comments, including names and addresses of those making submissions and observations, submitted to Cork City Council in regard to this proposal, will form part of the statutorily required report to be presented at the monthly meeting of Cork City Council. Accordingly, they will be included in the minutes of that meeting and may appear in the public domain.
