One lane of traffic has been reopened on North Main Street.
Five weeks after the partial collapse of No. 63 North Main Street caused Cork City Council to close the street to cars due to safety concerns, works continue to stabilise it.
A section of the street’s footpath will remain closed off in the short term to facilitate the ongoing repairs.
Further works are being carried out on numbers 62 and 64 following the June 20th incident, which left local traders seeking advice on recovery of loss of earnings and for the ‘devaluation and damage to the Medieval core of the city.’
Throughout the closure, North Main Street traders worked with local performers, artists, sports groups and musicians to create a carnival atmosphere on the temporarily pedestrianised street every weekend.
