The city is being reimagined.
And if the one-way pedestrianisation of French Church Street, Carey’s Lane, Cook Street and Marlboro Street affects you or the way you run your business, Cork City Council want to hear from you.
An online public consultation survey inviting the public, communities, businesses, and key stakeholders to have their say on the proposed implementation of one-way pedestrian movement on four city centre streets is now open with submissions invited before 5pm on Monday, June 8th, 2020.
This consultation forms part of a programme of measures being prepared by Cork City Council to “facilitate the awakening of the local economy” and to support both residents and the public in safely returning to work and commercial life in the city and town centres.
So what are the changes that will be made?
Cork City Council propose to implement one-way pedestrian movement on French Church Street, Carey’s Lane, Cook Street and Marlboro Street from Friday, June 12th, 2020 until August 31st, 2020.
Cork City Council has already temporarily pedestrianised the historic Marina riverside amenity and popular retail street Oliver Plunkett Street and have also been conducting a deep clean of the city centre and Glanmire, Blarney, Douglas and Ballincollig.
“The new measures proposed in the public consultation documentation will involve temporary changes to the flow of pedestrian traffic in order to maintain adequate separation space for public health social distancing requirements,” said Cork City Council Director of Operations, David Joyce.
“Our primary concern during this unprecedented time is to safely facilitate people travelling to work, education and amenities. While the proposed measures focus on protecting health and wellbeing, all interventions will need to be fully considered across all stakeholder interest groups, so please take the time to visit Cork City Council’s consultation portal to have your say.”
Submissions can be made in writing via this online consultation portal.
