Construction News Image
Irish Water and Cork City Council are starting the next stage of the Cork South Docks Network Extension and Upgrade Project.

The €1.2m investment in the project will deliver increased water supply capacity to the South Docks, which is essential to facilitate future development and economic growth in the area. This stage of the Cork South Docks Network Extension and Upgrade Project involves the construction of approximately 2.2km of new and upgraded watermains. The work, being carried out by Ward and Burke Limited on behalf of Irish Water, is split into seven distinct phases.

The project is due to commence in late January with phase one expected to take approximately three weeks. The entire seven phases of this second round of works are expected to be complete in late summer 2022.

Outlining the benefits the project will bring, Paul Moroney, Programme Manager with Irish Water explained: "Phase two of the South Docks network extension will deliver increased capacity to the South Docks area which has been earmarked for future development. In tandem with these benefits, it will also deliver efficiencies by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future. The entire project is another vital step in strengthening the water network; which will provide a more resilient water supply and support social and economic growth in Cork city.

"We will work with the local community to ensure as little disruption as is possible is experienced while we deliver this critical project. I want to thank everyone in advance as we continue to improve the water supply in Cork city."

Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. Traffic management may be in place during this time by way of a stop-go system and flagman operations. Local and emergency traffic will always be maintained.
