Tar-rific news for East Cork roads New Road Tar Sprayers for County Council Fleet


Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Christopher O’ Sullivan welcomed news of the recent addition of two, new, 32-tonne tar sprayers to Cork County Council’s Roads Maintenance Fleet.

Chief Executive Tim Lucey noted that it demonstrates Cork County Councils continuing commitment to improving delivery of road services “The purchase of these tar sprayers is part of an ongoing investment which has seen tar tanks, road graders, chip-spreaders and velocity patchers added to the Councils fleet over the last number of years. The life expectancy of these tar sprayers is 20-30 years and they replace older fleet that have already been in service for over 20 years.”

The tar sprayers are used for surface dressing and sealing road strengthening operations and will be based in the Council Machinery Yards in Mallow serving North and East Cork and in Skibbereen serving West Cork.
