Fine Gael Cork North West General Election candidate Councillor John Paul O’Shea has confirmed that work to install a pedestrian crossing outside Dun An Oir on the Kanturk/Newmarket Road will commence in the coming days. This work forms part of an overall resolution plan to finish out the entire works in the estate, which will take approximately five weeks to complete.
Cllr. O’Shea said: “A contractor has been appointed for these works and is due to go on site next week (week beginning August 12th). The pedestrian crossing is top of the list of works to be completed and follows on from news in May that AIB approved bond monies to Cork County Council for the completion of the estate.
“The pedestrian crossing is of high importance for residents living in Dun an Oir on safety grounds. For the completion of the pedestrian crossing, a stop/go system will be in place for approximately two days during these works. Full works on the estate will take approximately five weeks to complete.
Cllr. O’Shea added “Cork County Council will also erect electronic speed reflector signs on approach roads into Kanturk in September, following its approval by members in recent months,” he said.
