Buttevant to get motorway link

Residents living in Buttevant, north Cork, have secured direct junction access to the planned M20 motorway.

In previous plans for the €800 million M20 linking Cork to Limerick, Buttevant was the only town not served by a junction connection to the road.

Residents presented their case at an An Bord Pleanála oral hearing last July, arguing that the lack of access would be a massive economic disadvantage.

The board has now requested detailed plans for the proposed motorway including a new link to Buttevant.
