MOVE TO ALLAY FEARS OVER FLOOD RELIEF TRAFFIC DISRUPTION RELIEF
The contractors, Carillion Irishenco, local gardai and the Mayor of Fermoy have this week moved to allay fears of widespread traffic disruption due to the forthcoming installation of storm water drainage as part of the Fermoy Flood Relief Scheme.
Mayor Noel McCarthy emphasised that the announcement will get to people in time to allow the planning of alternative routes.
“We’ll try to minimise the effect of the road closures the best we can for all the residents,” he told The Avondhu. Meanwhile a statement issued to The Avondhu by the contractors confirms that this work will be carried out over the period from this Monday, November 2 to Friday, November 13.
The statement goes on to say – ‘A traffic and pedestrian management plan has been agreed for the installation of new storm water drainage on the R639 from the N72 Mallow Rd Jct to Fermoy Bridge.
• Storm drainage adjacent to Abercromby Place (lane restrictions)
• Storm Drainage adjacent to Brian Boru Square (lane restrictions)
• Road crossing from Abercromby Place to N72 Mallow Rd Junction will be carried out at night.
All of the above works will be carried out under a two-way traffic management system.
Full consultation has taken place between Fermoy Gardai, Town Engineer, elected representatives of Fermoy Town Council, OPW site representative and Carillion Irishenco client liaison traffic management officer. Drawings are available for inspection at the Fermoy Town Council offices and Carillion Irishenco site offices’.
It is understood that further updates in relation to up coming works will be issued in due course.
