Cloyne and Broomfield estates to get new pedestrian crossings


Councillors at March’s East Cork Municipal District meeting gave Cork County Council the go-ahead to commence the Part 8/Section 38 planning process for two proposed pedestrian crossings in the region, writes Christy Parker.

The projects pertain to Cloyne and Midleton’s Broomfield, while Section 38 represents a shorter-term public consultation process than normal, whereby a public safety measure is involved.

Revealing the plans, senior executive engineer Mark O’Sullivan said the Cloyne scheme would be located at St. Colman’s National School and involve a pedestrian crossing to be served by a school warden, new footpaths, safety bollards, upgraded public lighting and reduction of the road width.
