Motorists are advised that a further section of the new roadway adjoining the Dunnes Stores shopping centre will be opened to westbound traffic overnight tonight. Diversion of traffic onto the new section of roadway will take place after 10 pm and motorists are asked to pay particular attention to the new signage and the 60 kph speed limit while the new layout becomes established over the coming days. Diversion of traffic onto this new section will allow us to progress excavation of the existing median area on the South Ring which in turn will facilitate further works on the approach ramp to the flyover at the Bandon Road Roundabout. Similar median excavation works are already underway between the Sarsfield Roud Roundabout and the Pouladuff Overbridge- our aim in this area is to install the new concrete median barrier before the end of this month. Works over the coming weeks will focus increasingly on the Sarsfield Road Roundabout area including the entrance to Elmvale Estate. Details of the various work elements will be circulated as the works progress. Given the volume of upcoming works motorists are again asked to cooperate by observing the speed limits through the works area. . Also on the South Ring Road and on the N25 Cork-Midleton Road the Sign Refurbishment Contract and the Traffic Counter Installation Contract are both ongoing. In both cases any works which require lane closures are being carried out at night in order to minimise disruption to traffic.
