Due to the numerous representations in relation to the very bad section of roadway between Foxwood and Fort Hill I contacted the Engineers in charge of the project to query if they could resurface in this section before doing other works on the project. The Engineer has now given me the rationale behind commencing this project at the Maryborough Hill end first.

There will be two road closures in the Douglas and Frankfield areas from Monday 25th February 2013 – Wednesday 27th February 2013 between 7.30pm and 7.30am (3 nights) in order for Water Services, Cork County Council, to carry out essential repairs.
The following roads will be closed
(1) Douglas Area along Church Road from Douglas Church to the Church Road and Back of Douglas/Grange Hill Road junction
(2) Frankfield Area up Frankfield Hill from the Kinsale Road Roundabout to the Ballycureen and Frankfield Road junction
Diversions will be in place.
Cork County Council regret any inconvenience caused. Further details available from Water Services Phone No. 021-4285353.
The Council has commenced a review of measures which will enhance flood protection in the area of Douglas Community Park.
It is intended to provide flood gate protection to the gate area adjoining the trash screen. A detailed review of potential additional existing surface water pipe capacity exiting the park and connecting to the Douglas Village Shopping Centre culvert is also underway. The utilisation of this pipeline would provide of additional overflow capacity of any flood waters overtopping the Ballybrack stream.
Finally, an enhanced CCTV system specifically covering the trash screen with associated alarm connectivity will also be provided.
Over the years the Fingerpost Roundabout in Douglas has been the subject of comment in relation to which ‘ lane’ motorists are supposed to be in when exiting at each of the exits, the council are currently upgrading the surface and I have asked that the Roundabout itself is tidied up and a bit of colour is put into it. In addition, the Engineer has informed me that it is not proposed to mark two lanes on the roundabout due to the urban nature of the roundabout and to the high number of access and entry points on the roundabout. I suppose people will just have to familiarise themselves with the rules of the roundabout!!!
Received this email from our local community guard. Great interaction, practical advice and hopefully a good weekend was had by all. ps Im not sure how to increase the text size but will seek advice a.s.a.p. !!
With Halloween ahead of us this weekend I just wanted to send out a brief email to make sure everybody stays vigilant around the Douglas area as we expect it to be busy.
