Sewer network improvement works are set to continue along the Goatstown Road in Dún Laoghaire until Friday, October 8, to facilitate road resurfacing on Taney Road, writes Rachel Cunningham.

Irish Water is working in partnership with Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to improve the sewer network along the Goatstown Road, with the aim of supporting existing and future residential and commercial development. The wastewater project, which is being delivered by GMC Utilities limited on behalf of Irish Water, will reduce the risk of wastewater overflows to help to safeguard the environment.

The remainder of this week will see traffic lights at the Goatstown pub road junction being switched off between Monday 9am to Friday 6pm, with traffic marshalls monitoring traffic during these hours.

At night, traffic is being controlled by temporary traffic lights between 6pm and 9am, under traffic marshall supervision. The traffic lights will operate as normal during the weekends from Friday 6pm until Monday 9am and will return to normal function from Friday October 8 at 6pm. There has also been some disruption to the cycle lane on the Goatstown Road in the area of the works, which will continue to be closed for the duration of the project.

The current works started in June and the construction of the new sewer is expected to be complete in the Autumn. Commenting on the project, Padraig Hanly, Irish Water said: “A sewer network that is fit for purpose is essential in order to support business and social development in the community.”
