€1.3m Upgrade For Dublin's Docklands Sewer Network

Irish Water has announced an investment of over €1.3 million to upgrade Dublin's North Docklands.

The vital infrastructure development is in partnership with Dublin City Council.

GMC Sierra Limited will deliver the project.

Civil works will commence in age Sheriff Street East, Sheriff Street West, New Wapping Street and North Wall Quay areas over the next few weeks.

The work will include an assessment of the current structural sewer defects, work to reduce the likelihood of collapses and blockages, upgrades to critical infrastructure and maintenance, and improved performance levels of the network.

Hugh Kennedy, Irish Water Capital Programme Coordinator said: "These sewer network upgrades, when completed, will benefit the local community by reducing the risk of sewer collapses and blockages, and improve the performance level of the sewer network. They are essential infrastructure works to facilitate the development of the Dublin Docklands SDZ, and will enable future growth in the area.

"Every effort will be made to minimise the disruption and impact on the local community during the works. For example, we're using non-dig technology where we can to minimise the footprint of works. Irish Water regrets any inconvenience these necessary sewer improvements may cause and would like to thank local residents and businesses for their patience and cooperation in delivering these essential works which will ensure a more reliable sewer network."
