Essential works to repair Victorian Sewer on Clarendon Street
Part of the provision of essential wastewater infrastructure serving the City Centre area
Irish Water, in partnership with Dublin City Council, are carrying out essential structural repair works to a Victorian Sewer on Clarendon Street. These works are part of the provision of essential wastewater infrastructure serving the City Centre area, and include cleaning of the sewers to remove debris, and relining of structural defects in the sewer. GMC Sierra Limited is working on our behalf to deliver this project.
Rectifying blockages and structural defects
When complete, the project will benefit businesses and residents in the area by rectifying blockages and structural defects in the sewer network, and providing upgraded wastewater infrastructure.
Works commencing 25 March
The works will commence the week of March 25, and are expected to be completed in early May. The works area will extend approximately 100 metres from the junction of Clarendon Street and Wicklow Street to the junction of Clarendon Street and Coppinger Row.
Works undertaken during evenings
These works will be undertaken during evenings and overnight in order to mitigate any impact to residents or businesses, with only minor traffic disruption anticipated. The majority of the works will take place underground, therefore noise will be minimal. Access to properties and businesses will be unaffected by the works as the work crew will demobilise from the works area each morning.
Hugh Kennedy, Irish Water Capital Programmes
“These essential works are required to rectify structural defects in old Victorian Sewers. We thank the local community for their patience during these works, and apologise for any inconvenience the works on Clarendon Street will cause. This scheme, when complete, will provide essential wastewater infrastructure for businesses and residents of the area, improving the wastewater networks for the Clarendon Street area of the City Centre.”
