Irish Water update on Kildare Town Sewerage Scheme Upgrade Works
Irish Water is pleased to announce the signing of a contract which will involve an investment of approximately €2.7 million in upgrades to the Kildare Town Sewerage Scheme. The contract was signed on 8th December 2015 with John Cradock Ltd.
The awarding of the contract represents a further step in the continued delivery of improvements to the Wastewater Network in Kildare Town following the delivery of the Wastewater Treatment Plant in 2012 which has a capacity of 28,000 population equivalent.
The works contract comprises the construction of wastewater pumping stations at Dunmurry Road, Nurney Road & Curragh Road, 1,800 metres of gravity mains and 1,400 metres of rising mains. The works will be on the public road and off road.
The works are due to start today and will initially involve site clearance works with construction work due to commence in the coming months. Irish Water will continue to liaise directly with local residents in order to alert them to upcoming works as they are rolled out. The total duration of the works will be approximately 1 year.
