Following consideration of extensive feedback received from the public and of evolving climate, environmental and transport policy, a project update has been published on the following elements:

  • The provision of 80km of Active Travel infrastructure for walking and cycling, enhancing the health and wellbeing of our communities and making them more accessible and attractive for everyone.
  • The Junction Strategy, with nine (9 no.) junction locations identified which will provide connectivity with the communities of Blarney, Rathduff, Mourneabbey, Mallow, Buttevant, Charleville, Bruree, and Croom and connecting with the national road network at Attyflin near Patrickswell,
  • The provision of Mobility Hubs at the junctions with secure parking, EV charging, effective active travel and public transport linkages to nearby communities, offering greater travel choice and modal change opportunities,
  • Opportunities to enhance Public Transport and encourage transfer to bus and rail,
  • The Alternative Grey Area at Ballyhea has been removed from the study area, and
  • An Alternative Grey Area at Rathduff has been included in the study area for consideration.
