Sorensen Civil Engineering Limited has been officially appointed by Cork City Council to oversee the extensive Glashaboy Flood Relief Scheme. The scheme, funded by the Office of Public Works (OPW), aims to introduce vital flood defences, including concrete culverts, bridges, road resurfacing, and embankments.
Traffic Management Plans
To facilitate the upcoming works, a comprehensive Traffic Management strategy has been implemented. Starting today, 4th of September, Traffic Management will be in place on the R639 at the Springmount Culvert. The road will be reduced to one lane for the foreseeable future.
24/7 Stop & Go System
From today, a 24-hour Stop & Go system will be activated seven days a week on the R639. During peak hours (07:00 to 19:00), this system will be manually operated. Outside these hours, a vehicle-actuated traffic light system will take over.
Residents and local businesses are encouraged to subscribe to a free text alert system for real-time updates on the project. Simply text ‘GFRS’ to 50015.

The council and Sorensen Civil Engineering urge the public to exercise caution and patience during these necessary works and promise to keep disruptions to a minimum.
