Oppose the 15km OPW Walls
The OPW wish to start the Walls scheme at Morrisons Island in Cork City centre against the advice of world experts and academics. The 15km Walls scheme would damage Cork beyond repair and is not adaptable to climate change. It would cost over €300m.
The Little Island tidal barrier
We propose a tidal barrier at Little Island to work with the existing dams to protect more of Cork City for less. The tidal barrier would protect more of the city including Docklands and create opportunity for the local economy.
HR Wallingford Cost Report
The estimated cost of the tidal barrier at 2017 prices is €140m. There is no doubt that a barrier could be built at the proposed location. The tidal barrier scheme has the major benefit of not requiring the construction of walls along the quays in the city. HR Wallingford
