The Bandon Road Roundabout, pre-flyover

The Bandon Road Roundabout

The flyover over the Bandon Road Roundabout in Bishopstown is completed (or so I’ve read, I haven’t driven over it yet) but here’s what it looked like 2006, well before any work was done. The pedestrian walkway I took this from is long gone and the area itself looks a lot different now!

Now, all we need is a north-south road with a 100kph speed limit and we’re all sorted.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 2013
A NEW era of motoring in Cork dawned today as the city’s new 60 million twin flyovers opened to traffic on the South Ring Road.
Traffic travelling both east and west on the N25 were directed on to the new flyovers at the Sarsfield Road and Bandon Road roundabouts from 6am this morning.
Up to 60,000 vehicles every day will now be taken off the two roundabouts, vastly reducing traffic congestion in the Bishopstown and Wilton areas.
Travel times are also expected to be cut by up to 30 minutes at peak traffic periods with the opening of the flyovers which took two years to complete.
