An efficient and uncongested road network is a vital component in sustaining economic growth. The redeveloped Dunkettle Interchange by Transport Infrastructure Ireland has delivered 18 new road links, totalling 10km in length.

Cork County Council is due to go to tender later this year on principal works on the M28 motorway link to Ringaskiddy which is key to fully unlocking the potential of Cork Docklands. The N/M20 motorway link from Cork to Limerick is progressing through the design process. A new Northern Distributor Road and an outer Northern Ring Road for Cork City, which will alleviate traffic congestion and improve connectivity across the entire network are also in the early planning and design stages.

At a local level, cycle and pedestrian improvements are progressing at various locations across the City including Donnybrook, Innishmore, Glanmire and Mahon improving safety for all road users. Major road improvements are also planned for areas such as Lehenaghmore and Ballyvolane with related land acquisition currently underway.
