Default Cork Flood Relief Scheme

The OPW can fuck right off, the cost should not be a factor in this.

A tidal barrier is the best long term solution in my opinion, if it good enough for the dutch.

It's an atrocious project. No self respecting city would accept it.

Btw, I suspect that if approved, the process is going to be held up significantly due to legal appeals. Apparently, it's extremely vulnerable from a process perspective. It's being railed through under outdated arterial legislation with very poor tokenist gestures of consultation. That latest report, which rejects every other measure apart from its own engineering based concrete and pump philosophy is shockingly substandard. Very sloppy of the Opw.

Oh, and it won't work either, according to climate experts.

And it doesn't address the docklands or Tivoli.

It's brexitesque in its... How would you say, in its amateurish nature.

Tidal barrier is the only thing that will work brah.

They would combine it with a lower river crossing.

Is there a copy of the Tidal barrier proposal on the internet somewhere? Can't find it.

Located 10 km downstream from the city centre - where is that - at the narrowest stretch of the harbour between Passage and Marino Point?

Here's the Tidal Barrier proposal from Save Cork City
http://savecorkcity.org/wp-content/u...ord-Report.pdf

And here's the OPW's report that rejects it

Make up your own mind.

Govt don't care which option works best, they'll just pick the cheapest scheme possible. Important decisions are once again in the hands of a politician who has no idea or background in engineering.

Cork politicians are very quiet about this as usual. We really are "blessed" with a useless shower down here.
