The Council continues to invest in the development of infrastructure across the county during these challenging times. These particular works will enhance the road network and improve road safety for all road users in Cobh and the East Cork Municipal District.”
Mayor of the County of Cork Cllr Ian Doyle commented, “This contract tender shows Cork County Council’s commitment to infrastructural improvements continues unabated. These works in Cobh and surrounding areas are expected to take place from June to October 2020 and people should expect some road closures and traffic management systems during this period.”
