Period: November 2006 to August 2007


Creation of a new bus and cycle corridor into Cork's centre from the west side of the city. To achieve this, the existing carriageway had to be realigned and resurfaced using Ha Telit Asphalt Reinforcement Grid to prevent the cracking that would otherwise occur when overlaying a concrete surface with tarmaccadam. Extensive traffic management was an integral requirement of the project which included 22,000 sq. metres of carriageway reconstruction and overlay.

The project incorporated a complete upgrade of the existing drainage system and new ducting was laid along the length of the carriageway. New footpaths were also constructed, complete with high specification railings and street lighting to enhance the already beautiful surroundings of the Lee Fields.
