The Carrigaline Christmas lights will be erected by Cork County Council again this year. The welcome news was announced on Monday by local Councillor Séamus Mc Grath.
Contractors worked at night time last week to re-tarmac a stretch of road on the southern side of the Main Street in Carrigaline from the Corner House to the Bank Of Ireland. The surface of Church Road from the traffic lights to Wesley Estate has also been re-laid. The major road widening by the Ashgrove roundabout and the upgrading of the Ballinrea Road to a very high standard serving the new education complex is complete. The building of the Western Relief Road is progressing and expected to be complete within 12 months.
