Objectors to a €220m Cork motorway that has received approval from An Bord Pleanála say they will consider their options in the coming days — including potential court action — to prevent the development from going ahead.
Because of plans to increase investment in national infrastructure by €500m each year, between 2019 and 2021, the M20 motorway, between Cork and Limerick, is a step closer to happening, the two city’s business leaders said last night.
Executive staff of Cork County Council, backed by elected members, have warned the Government any attempt to re-route a proposed motorway link between Cork and Limerick through Tipperary would be a disaster for the economies of North Cork, Kerry, and West Limerick.
Pre-tax profits at the consortium that operates the e-Flow toll on the M50 and other motorways fell 6% to €2.6m in 2014, new figures show. According to abridged accounts just filed with the Companies Office by Sanef ITS Operations Ireland Ltd — now renamed Emovis Operations Ireland Ltd — the firm recorded the decrease in pre-tax profit after gross profits dropped 12% from €6m to €5.3m in the 12 months to the end of 2014.
