The June meeting of the Mallow Area Roads Committee of Cork County Council will take place on Tuesday 11th June 2013 in the County Council Offices at Annabella, Mallow.
These meetings are held once a month, where the five councillors representing the Mallow Electoral Area and the Mayor of Mallow Town meet with the engineers that cover the Mallow Area Roads.
Councillors are entitled to submit a maximum of six motions in advance of the meeting on issues relating to roads and road maintenance. I always submit six!! The engineers have a written response to present at the meeting which is then discussed.
My motions for the June meeting are as follows:
“That this committee seek an urgent meeting with the Director of Roads in relation to the funding and resources available to Mallow Area Roads Office for the remainder of 2013”.
“That Cork County Council repair potholes and open inlets on the L-5208-0 road at Coolremore, Banteer.
“That Cork County Council notify landowners on the L-1210-0 road from Newberry Cross to Newberry Railway Gates to cut back verges and hedgerows (including the appropriate timeframe as outlined by the DOECLG) as it is affecting daily commuting”.
“That Cork County Council carry out the necessary drainage works in the vicinity of the Grotto, Nadd as previously requested”.
“That Cork County Council remove loose chippings/debris from the Roskeen junction (L-5305 onto the N72). Also, seal road where new watermain was put it and open inlets to prevent this from occurring in the future”.
“That Cork County Council fill potholes on the L-1201 road at Carrigane, Lombardstown”.
