Posted by admin

   The Skehard Road widening and renewal project is a very important part of infrastructure for not just Blackrock and Mahon but also the south part of Cork city, according to Independent Cllr Kieran McCarthy Phase 2 of the project from Parkhill Estate up to and including the Church Road Junction commenced construction in December 2017.

       30% of the work has been undertaken to date: Watermain renewal works (95% complete), Stone wall construction (70% complete), Footpath and duct network works (10% complete) are ongoing.

Outstanding items of work include the following: completion of the footpath and ducting network, carriageway realignment and reconstruction work, public lighting, undergrounding ESB network cables and removal of poles, resurfacing works, lining, signage and landscaping.

Cllr McCarthy noted; “Traffic disruption during the construction phase will be limited to the greatest possible extent with traffic sensitive work planned for the summer months. Phase 2 of the project is scheduled to be substantially complete by mid December 2018. Phase 3, which is the remainder of Skehard Road between Church Road Junction and CSO Junction, is scheduled to commence construction in mid 2019. The process of acquiring land to facilitate this phase of work is underway”.
