Cork County Council has prepared a draft Transportation and Public Realm Enhancement Plan (TPREP) for Carrigaline and is asking members of the public to share their views on on the draft proposals.

The TPREP is an integrated transportation framework focused on addressing the transportation infrastructure and public realm enhancement required to support the sustainable development of Carrigaline.

A new vision 

Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Mary Linehan Foley, said with the population and employment growth projected for Carrigaline, a “new vision for the town” is needed.

“Through the provision of high-quality spaces and public realm that facilitates people meeting and socialising outdoors, the TPREP will also enable town centre businesses to grow and flourish,” she said.
