Transportation Division

Office Hours

Monday to Friday 9.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.

The aim of the Transportation Division is to provide safe and efficient traffic movement within the city. This is achieved by traffic management plans, parking enforcement and provision of parking, public lighting and managing statutory procedures such as road closures, traffic diversions etc. The maintenance of the Public Lighting Programme is contracted to the ESB. The pay parking services section is responsible for management of the City Council’s off-street car parks and enforcement of parking bye-laws on the city’s streets. A system of disc parking is in place in the city centre streets. A new system for parking on-street utilising a mobile phone will be available to the public in from 18th May 2015. For further information on parking, please click here.

The Transportation Division co-ordinates the control and management of traffic, parking and street lighting within the city. This work includes the design, installation and maintenance of traffic signals, traffic signs and road markings. Traffic diversions and road closures are carried out to facilitate road works, the upgrading of underground utility services or the holding of special events such as races, carnivals, parades, etc.

A Cork Traffic Model (CTM) has been constructed to simulate the traffic patterns in the city. It was used to forecast the effect of the Jack Lynch Tunnel and to highlight traffic pattern changes as a result of this major road infrastructure. It is also being used to test new road schemes including the Blackpool By-Pass and the Ballincollig By-Pass. A major element of the modelling work will be the carrying out of feasibility studies on the various City Council transportation policies. Major studies being done include the analysis of the effect of reverting some of the city centre one-way systems to two-way, and a comprehensive review of the traffic situation in Bishopstown and the effect of the new green routes on the street network.

Parking is a major function of the Transportation Division and it is responsible for the control of on-street parking and off-street parking, the management of the two multi-storey car parks and Park & Ride. Disc Parking is the system of control on the streets and it is widely regarded as an efficient and flexible system with the added advantage of being 'environmental friendly' in that the amount of street furniture required is minimal. Cork City Council employs its own traffic wardens to enforce the parking regulations. Enforcement of the Disc Parking Bye-Laws and the Traffic Regulations is carried out by Traffic Wardens.

Parking in Cork City

Cork City Council operates a Disc Parking system of Payment for parking in Cork City Centre. Cars parked in a Disc Parking area (as indicated by on street parking signs and information plates) must display a valid parking disc. The Parking limit in each area will be identified by the normal parking sign – the letter ‘P’ in a circle and an information plate showing the time allocated in the area. The leaflet below contains information about parking in Cork City. If you have any further queries please contact the Administrative Officer, Traffic Division, City Hall, Cork.
