Clarke's Hill Road Improvement Scheme

Planning/Design Phase

Works Extent

Cork City Council intends to upgrade the existing L2471 Clarkes Hill Road and associated junction with the R610 Rochestown Road.


The scheme is an extensive Urban Road Improvement Project that will include the introduction of new footpaths, bus set-down facilities, road widening & surfacing, and all associated works.  In order to deliver this scheme, land acquisition will be necessary.  The completion of the proposed local road improvement scheme will improve the road infrastructure for road users with a specific emphasis on facilities for pedestrians and local bus services.  The scheme measures approximately 1km in length.


Part 8 Planning for the project was approved by Cork County Council in 2018.  This area subsequently transferred into Cork City Council’s administrative responsibility. Cork City Council intends to progress the detailed design and land acquisition of this infrastructure project in 2023.
