Four towns and villages within the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District are to benefit from Cork County Council’s 2017 Public Lighting Programme.
A total of €400,000 of funding has been set aside countywide for a public lighting programme with €52,400 being allocated to the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District.
Welcoming the allocation of funding to the specific towns and villages, North Cork Independent Cllr. John Paul O’ Shea said “This announcement is very welcomed news and will go some way in addressing the gaps in our public lighting network we currently have in the District”.
Public Lighting improvement works will take place in the following areas:
Newmarket – 4 lights – Extension of public lighting towards Coolagh Bridge
Kiskeam – 6 lights – Boherbue Road, Kiskeam
Ballyclough – 4 lights (2 new and 2 upgrades) – Scart, Ballyclough
Newtwopothouse – 3 lights – Doneraile Road,
Cllr. O’ Shea added “These works will improve greatly the specific areas in our District. While there is many more towns and villages that cold benefit from funding for the replacement and additional public lighting, this is a very good start and it is my view and intention to seek more funding in the coming months to continue this vital work for the people living within the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District. I also want to compliment the staff involved in Public Lighting for their efforts in preparing this programme for 2017”.
