One way system motors on

Wednesday, 12th June, 2019 5:05pm

A call to make a small road on the northside of Cork city one way has been shot down by the council.
City Hall management although admitting that Fair Street, between Shandon Street and Wolfe Tone Street, was narrow and lightly trafficked, it said it could not make it into a one-way system for a number of reasons.

The call came from Sinn Féin Cllr Kenneth Collins but the head of roads in City Hall Gerry O’Beirne said such a plan couldn’t drive ahead.

He said a one way system would attract additional traffic to the road, traffic speeds would increase which would make it less friendly for pedestrians and it would makes access for deliveries and local residents more difficult. He added: “The current situation operates as a form of traffic calming.” where traffic is deterred from using the roadway as a rat run or through road.”
