Local and emergency access will be maintained at all times and the local community where the works will be delivered will be notified directly. Please view the attached map which includes the diversion route.

These works will support existing and future residential and commercial development while also improving the overall performance of the sewer network, helping to safeguard the environment. Irish Water, South Dublin County Council regret any inconvenience these necessary improvement works may cause."
