New walkway at Dunkettle Interchange opens - Nov 2020

In 2019, I had a post up about the new proposed walkway for the Dunkettle Interchange. See photo above and link HERE

As of the 16th of November, this new walkway is now open to walkers, runners and cyclists.

 The aerial photo above shows the new walkway which is highlighted with purple arrows.

The map below shows the new section in Blue and how it will fit into other developments...

This next photo shows the bridge over the Glashaboy River which has been widened to incorporate a new footpath. Prior to this, there was no hard shoulder which made this a no go area for walkers and runners.

This is another view of the new path on the path but looking back towards the Dunkettle Roundabout...

From the Dunkettle Roundabout, there is a footpath all of the way into Glanmire.

This short video shows part of the new walkway when it was under construction...

This is a welcome development for walkers and runners in the area as it opens up new areas and routes. In time, this new path will connect onto the new path to Carrigtwohill which will make the whole area a lot safer for walking, running and cycling.

As for the main Dunkettle Interchange, it is expected that the €215 million project will be finished in Q1 of 2024.
