Cork South West, Fine Gael TD, Jim Daly has received confirmation from Cork County Council that a pedestrian crossing will be built in Riverstick Village.
Earlier this year Deputy Daly visited a number of housing estates in the village. He heard concerns from many residents about the dangers of crossing the busy road, which links Cork to Kinsale.
Jim Daly raised the issue with the Council in order to get a pedestrian crossing put in place. This week, the Senior Executive Engineer, Liam Dromey, confirmed that the works will be carried out later this year.
Daly further highlights that “this project is one I feel very strongly about as the traffic speed on this road is very fast and locals find it very difficult to cross the road to gain access to the local shop, pharmacy, public house and community centre, especially the young and the elderly. I would like to commend the Council for their proactive manner in which they have handled this most serious issue.”
