ESB PUTS FERMOY CABLES UNDERGROUND
With phase 2 of the flood relief scheme expected to commence later this year, advance work, due to be completed by May 31, is currently being undertaken on the undergrounding of overhead ESB network cables at Ashe Quay, Fermoy.
Existing underground cables running from the intersection of Ashe Quay and Abbey Street as far as the youth centre will have to be diverted.
In addition, existing underground cables fronting the rowing club along Barnane Walk will also have to be relocated. It was agreed with the OPW that these advance works be undertaken in order to minimise future disruption once phase 2 of the flood relief scheme begins.
The advance work itself should cause little disruption to businesses and residents in the area and will be of relatively short duration. Works at O’Neill Crowley Quay include the undergrounding of the existing overhead cables from Pearse Square along O’Neill Crowley Quay as far as its intersection with Kent Street.
This project is set to commence on June 20, when the second level schools have closed for the summer break and will be completed by July 1.
Single lane traffic will apply on the quay for a short period.
