South Drogheda community to benefit from wastewater network upgrade

Uisce Éireann, in partnership with Louth County Council, is progressing a project to upgrade the wastewater network at The Dale, Lagavoreen to support existing and future growth and development, while ensuring the protection of the local environment.

This project is being delivered as part of Uisce Éireann's national Growth and Development programme to support social and economic growth within the community. 

Commenting on the project, Uisce Éireann's Padraig Hanly, said: "We are delighted to be progressing this vital wastewater project for the people of South Drogheda. This project will bring tangible benefits to the community and the environment facilitating future demand and reducing the risk of sewer flooding in the area."

The works are due to commence onsite in early April and will involve the installation of 500m of new sewerage pipes to improve the capacity and operational performance of the network. The works will be carried out on behalf of Uisce Éireann by GMC Utilities Group Ltd. and are expected to be completed in Q4 2024. 

In order to safely facilitate works, a stop/go traffic management system will be in place at Marsh Road and The Dale. Traffic management will be phased to minimise disruption. The 101 Steps at The Dale will be temporarily closed to facilitate works with a pedestrian diversion in place.

Standard working hours are from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Thursday and from 8am - 4pm on Fridays. Uisce Éireann understands that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause.
