East Cork Sinn Féin TD Pat Buckley, and Councillor Danielle Twomey, Sinn Féin welcome the announcement by Cork County Council under Part 8 Planning to construct a new slip road at Lakeview Roundabout, Midleton at the N25 junction with the R630 Midleton and Ballinacurra. The Deputy and Councillor said this is great news for the area in particular as it is very long overdue. The construction of the slip-road to the South West of the existing roundabout which will allow traffic from the south R630 to merge with the N25 westbound to Cork City, thus bypassing the existing roundabout. Deputy Buckley said "This is wonderful news, and I’m sure that all users of this route will welcome it. I and my colleague, Councillor Danielle Twomey, have been very vocal on this issue for a long time. Deputy Buckley goes on to say ”only as recently as December 2017 I raised this matter directly with the Minister under Topical Issues and the full transcript is here for all to see. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Cork County Council and all those involved for this very welcome news. It will reduce the very long traffic queues and, hopefully, plans for a new Ambulance base in the area may well progress when these vital works are completed.
