Planned Works-Balbriggan Area Dublin Road Pumping Station & Associated Works-Updated 16th March 2015

This work is being undertaken by Jons Civil Engineering and expected to last for approximately 14 months from July 2014. Unfortunately it will be necessary to close a section of the public car park for the duration of the works and there will also be intermittent traffic disruption and possible road closures over this period. Every effort will be made to provide early notification of any such disruptions.

 The current status of works on Hamilton Road are as follows

  • One outstanding section of the new pipes to be installed on Hamilton Road requires a Gas Main diversion. Coordination of the Gas Main diversion and completion on the new Hamilton Road pipelines is currently being finalised. These works are now scheduled to be commence on Monday 23rd March and anticipated to take 2 weeks to complete.
  • Traffic Management for this work will require a shuttle system to be implented for the duration anticipated.
  • Completion of the permanent reinstatement on all sections of public road affected by the scheme is due by the first week of August 2015. The situation regarding the Permanent Reinstatement of Hamilton Road will be reviewed following completion, testing and commissioning of all pipe lines installed in this location. We expect the permanent reinstatement of Hamilton to be undertaken between April and May 2015.
