The North Mall will be closed between the UCC Distillery and Sunday’s Well Road until at least 6am tomorrow, following what contractors Farrans have called “an unforeseen issue with a water main”.
An emergency closure was granted by Cork City Council Traffic Department to allow the closure from 2pm today to 6am tomorrow.
In a statement to The Echo the contractors, who are working on behalf of Irish Water said:
“We envisage that all rectification works should be completed tonight with the road back open tomorrow morning. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
