Major Scheme Complete On Donegal Road

Construction News Image
The Donegal County Council Road Scheme along the N56 has been officially completed.

Contractor BAM delivered the project, before officially reopening the road alongside the Council.

As well as road works, Irish Water jumped aboard the scheme to complete over 6km of trunk and distribution mains between Coolboy and Kilmacrennan. These works were delivered under the Letterkenny Regional Water Supply Scheme, which will safeguard the water supply to Letterkenny and surrounding areas.

Discussing the project, Diane Carroll, Irish Water's Programme Manager said: "We are advancing the Letterkenny Regional Water Supply Scheme, across a number of contracts, which consists of two new water treatment plants in Kildarragh and Goldrum, to provide the Creeslough and Letterkenny areas with a safe and secure water supply and over 29km of watermain to improve security of supply in  the region. The synergies delivering the water and road improvement works in the area were recognised and as Donegal County Council were implementing a Roads Contract in the area – it included the 6km of watermain to minimise costs and impact on road users."

She added: "Delivering water infrastructure in conjunction with the Road's project has been more cost effective than if the projects were completed separately. By working together, disruption to the local community has also been significantly reduced."
