ABOUT

The Passage Railway Greenway Improvement Scheme is located to the east of the Cork City Council jurisdiction. The existing greenway, which as part of this scheme is proposed to be widened, provides an off-road link for pedestrians/cyclists to connect from Marina Road at the northern end of the scheme to the end of the current City boundary where the existing greenway crosses over the N40 via an overbridge.

The following modifications to the existing greenway are proposed:

• The widening of the existing surfaced area from 3m to 5m over the entire length of the existing greenway from Páirc Uí Chaoimh to Mahon.

• Create an Environmental ‘living’ corridor which will support pollinator populations, increase biodiversity and optimise the benefits for flora and fauna along the route.

• The construction of a new access ramp from the greenway to the Marina.

• Improved access from the Blackrock Road by reinstating the footbridge utilising the existing historic abutments, access ramp and disused railway platforms.

• The creation of a new access point at Eden Access by constructing a new access ramp and refurbishing the existing stone arch overbridge.

• Upgrading both access ramps from the Skehard Road.

• The installation of new public lighting along the full extent of the greenway.

• The installation of CCTV over the full extent of the greenway.
