The opening of Cork’s newest walking and cycling bridge has been warmly welcomed — people are saying that route is being well used despite the wintry weather.
The bridge crosses the N40 dual carriageway and forms part of a 1.5km route linking the city to the suburbs via Tramore Valley Park.
Cork City Council said: “Vernon Mount Bridge is OPEN! The incredible new #activetravel amenity sits over the N40 and spans from Grange Road to Tramore Valley Park’s pedestrian and cycle route.”
“The new route is 1.5 kilometres long, 4 metres wide, and is fully accessible to all ages and abilities, safely linking Grange into the city via Tramore Valley Park,” the council said.
The council said that the four-metre-wide pathway will also support people with mobility needs and includes environmentally sensitive public lighting.
