Lakeview Roundabout sliproad 'welcome' - Pat Buckley TD
East Cork Sinn Féin TD Pat Buckley and Councillor Danielle Twomey Sinn Féin have welcomed the announcement by Cork County Council under part 8 planning to construct a new slip road at Lakeview Roundabout, Midleton, County Cork at the N25 junction with the R630 Midleton and Ballinacurra.
Deputy Buckley said;
"This is great news for this area, in particular the very fact that it's been very long overdue.
"With the construction of a slip-road to the South-West of the existing roundabout, this will allow traffic from the South R630 to merge with the N25 westbound to Cork City, thus bypassing the existing roundabout.
"This is wonderful news and I'm sure all users of this route will welcome this news. I and my colleague Counicillor Twomey have been very vocal on this issue for a long time.
"Only as recently as December 2017 I raised this directly with the Minister for Transport under Topical Issues and the full transcript is available above for all to see.
"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Cork County Council and all those involved for this very welcome news.
"I know that this will reduce the very long traffic queues and maybe now the plans for an ambulance base within the area may well progress once these vital works are carried out."
