Traffic restrictions on flooded Cork to Waterford N25 route

The N25 Cork to Waterford Road between Killeagh and Castlemartyr is currently impassable due to flooding.

Due to adverse weather conditions over night, the local diversion routes have deteriorated further and Cork County Council have not been in a position to repair them.

There will be further traffic delays expected on the diversion routes tomorrow morning.

Signed diversions are in place from Killeagh via Mogeely into Castlemartyr but there will be severe traffic restrictions and these diversion routes are now unsuitable for any H.G.V. Traffic.

There should be no deviation from the signed diversion route as roads off of the route are impassable.

The R72 Fermoy to Dungarvan Rd is now open and should be used by H.G.V.’s in order to avoid N25.

The following diversions as agreed between An Garda Síochána and Cork and Waterford County Councils will be in place for Cork to Waterford Traffic:

Westbound Traffic

All Waterford to Cork Traffic is urged to use the N24 Waterford to Cahir and then the M8 / N8 route to Cork.

All Dungarvan to Cork traffic should divert via the N24 route to Fermoy and then the N8 / M8 to Cork.

All Youghal to Cork H.G.V. traffic will be diverted at Rincrew Roundabout (Youghal Bridge) via Tallow (R634) and onto the N72 to Fermoy and then onto the N8 / M8 to Cork.

Eastbound Traffic

All Cork to Waterford Traffic is urged to use the N8 / M8 Cork to Dublin Rd and turn off at Cahir then onto the N24 to Waterford.

All Cork to Dungarvan Traffic is urged to travel via the N8 / M8 to Fermoy and then the N72 to Dungarvan.

All Cork to Youghal Traffic is urged to travel via the N8 / M8 to Fermoy and then the N72 and R634 to Youghal.

Some minor roads remain flooded and motorists should obey relevant road signs.
