The November meeting of the Mallow Area Roads Committee of Cork County Council will take place on Tuesday 12th November 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 Roads Area.
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 November meeting are as follows:
“That Cork County Council receives a deputation from the community in Bweeng who have serious concerns regarding the lack of a footpath from the church to the school in the village”. – Joint Motion
“That Cork County Council weeds the plantation on Beecher Street and Killarney Road roundabouts which is for many road users the first impression of Mallow on their arrival”.
“That Cork County Council repairs the road alongside the footpath outside Kelly’s Shop, Dromahane which is currently in a very bad condition and dangerous to pedestrians”.
“That Cork County Council receives an update from the NRA regarding the placement of road markings outside Joyce Garden Centre, Mallow”.
“That Cork County Council water services team in consultation with the Mallow Area Roads office replaces the entrance to the house of Michael Deady, Horgan’s Cross, Lombardstown following repair to a broken watermain back in 2012”.
“That Cork County Council repairs the road at Kilpatrick, Ballyclough which is currently severely potholed and this road be considered for future restoration programmes”.
