Freephone number 1800 283034, 8am to 8pm

Cork City Council is this afternoon (12/1/10) advising the public of localised flooding in parts of the city.

The Curraheen River and the Shournagh River have burst their banks resulting in localised flooding in areas including the Lee Road, Magazine Road and Doughcloyne, Togher.

Due to a combination of heavy rainfall and tidal conditions, a number of city roads have been experiencing localised ponding and flooding including Centre Park Road and Monahan Road which are currently closed to traffic.

The City Council’s Roads Crews have been working from early morning and continue to deal with problems as they arise.

Note:  High tide is expected at approximately 4pm today, following which conditions can normally be expected to improve.

Cork City Council will continue to monitor the situation and advises motorists and pedestrians to travel with caution and where possible to avoid these areas.
