Cork South Central Fine Gael TD, Jerry Buttimer, has organised a public meeting to discuss the Rochestown exit and Carr’s Hill Interchange on the proposed M28 Cork-Ringaskiddy Motorway Scheme. The meeting will take place at 8pm on Friday on 30th October in Garryduff Sports Centre.
“This is a significant local and national infrastructure project that will impact on local residents. It is important that they are kept informed about this project, what will be involved and that their voice is heard loud and clear during the planning process.
“I have organised this with Cllr Deirdre Forde as we have both been contacted by people living in the area on this issue. By engaging with residents at this early stage we bring their concerns to the attention of the design teams. This must be about making sure that the project works for local communities and that it improves the transport network.
“Funding has been approved for M28 Cork-Ringaskiddy Motorway Scheme as part of the Government’s Capital Plan. This major project will now go forward to the planning phase. It is vital that at all stages local residents are kept you up-to-date on this project and we hope that this meeting will be informative and will help with this process.”
