Community Update

Community updateThe Carrigaline Western Relief Road project is being undertaken by Bam Civil Ltd. on behalf of Cork County Council with construction activities due to commence in April 2021 and will continue for 18 months.

This critical infrastructure development is required to relieve traffic congestion along the Main Street and to facilitate the ongoing development of the town.

Every effort will be made to minimize disruption during the construction works and we don’t envisage any adverse effect on your day to day activities. Nevertheless, we shall endeavour to engage with the local community at all times to keep you up to date on progress, project news and upcoming temporary traffic management arrangements.

In order to provide such information, a specific project website has been setup here.

We have also appointed a Community Liaison Officer, Jack Walsh. Jack can be contacted at the following details if you have any queries.

Description: The Carrigaline Western Relief Road scheme involves the provision of an urban relief road of 750 metres in length.

It also incorporates and completes Soccer Club Road, 690 metres in length.

The urban relief road includes the construction of a new double span bridge over the Owenboy River and 3 new signalised junctions. The roadway incorporates a cycleway and pedestrian infrastructure as a key active travel measure.

It allows for further development of lands to the west of main street, including significant housing expansion. It is the key enabler of the future development plans for Main Street, Carrigaline.

The project is funded by Cork County Council and the Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage through the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF).
