Ireland 2040: Significant developments on the cards for Co Cork

The gulf in planned development between Cork and Kerry is highlighted by the number of mentions each county gets in both the national development plan (NDP) and the longer term Project Ireland 2040.

Cork gets 73 mentions in the NDP and 84 in the 2040 plan, while Kerry received 13 and nine respectively.
A planned €200m is to be set aside by the Government to provide new bus corridors, more efficient and reliable bus services and a network of park-and-ride sites in Cork City and its suburbs.
The NDP also mentions a new hospital and ambulances bases for Cork but does not provide further specific details.
The €900m Cork to Limerick motorway (M20) which was first mooted in 2005, is included in the plan, along with a planned but vital €100m upgrade of the Jack Lynch Tunnel/Dunkettle interchange and the building of the Macroom bypass.
