Rocks on road a dan­ger near Mun­ster join­ery

The Corkman - - NEWS - MARIA HER­LIHY

COUN­CIL of­fi­cials need to in­ves­ti­gate the pos­si­bilty of re­mov­ing rock that is com­ing out onto the road near Mun­ster Join­ery in Bal­ly­desmond as nu­mer­ous ac­ci­dents have oc­curred over the last num­ber of years.

That was the mo­tion put for­ward by Cllr John Paul O’Shea (Ind) as he said that, as it cur­rently stands, two trucks can not pass be­sides each other on that road.

At the Kan­turk Mal­low mu­nic­i­pal dis­trict meet­ing, he said he has al­ready spo­ken to some lo­cal en­gi­neers and it is hoped that work can be done for the pas­sage of the trucks.

Cllr Timmy Collins (Ind) asked if it was the landowner’s duty to take care of this task.

Jim Moloney of Cork County Coun­cil said this would need to be in­ves­ti­gated to see what mea­sures could pos­si­bly be taken.

“This may in­volve a landowner but it is too early to say for the mo­ment, but we will in­ves­ti­gate it,” he said.

Cllr O’Shea said there are nu­mer­ous heavy goods ve­hi­cles on that stretch of road – the R582.

“A plan needs to be put in place to al­le­vi­ate this prob­lem,” he said.
