Roughan & O'Donovan has secured first place on Dublin Port Company’s Framework for Engineering Consultants and will now progress the detailed design and construction of the Port’s planned road network redevelopment.
The €50m scheme, which recently achieved planning approval, includes the detailed design of several significant structures, including:
- 2 underpass structures beneath the Promenade Road roundabout
- 7m high piled wall at the highly sensitive Calor Gas storage site
- 4m high piled bund wall at the Topaz Fareplay Yard
Significant ground investigation was carried out to inform the design of not only these structures but also over 1km of new road construction, 1.3km of greenway along the port’s northern foreshore and 3 significant junction upgrades.
The greenway is the first section of the planned 4km new amenity route from Alfie Byrne Road to the eastern tip of the North Port. It will incorporate several viewing points and information boards related to the history of the port and the biodiversity of Dublin Bay.
Harry Meighan, Director, Roughan & O'Donovan, welcomed the company's most recent success, commenting:
We are delighted by the opportunity to continue our involvement in the project and to build on our relationship with Dublin Port Company.
