Planning Permission Has Been Lodged For A Helipad At Cork University Hospital
The €1.8 million project has been delayed for 15 years
The original helipad was removed during the redevelopment of the hospital's emergency department.
The new helipad will be suitable for landings by helicopters operated by the Irish Air Corps and Coast Guard.
Patients have been flown into Bishopstown's GAA pitches and transferred to CUH by ambulance in recent years.
The Irish Examiner reports that the HSE has also sought permission for a two-storey staff car park to replace the 164 parking spaces lost in the new development.
