Kinsealy Local Network Reinforcement Project
Irish Water is undertaking works on a major wastewater project in the Kinsealy area.
The scheme includes the construction of a new pumping station with emergency storage tank, gravity inlet sewer, emergency overflow pipeline, 1.75 km of rising sewer main along Chapel Road and Drumnigh Road and decommissioning of existing pumping station at Kinsealy Lane. A further 380 metres of new Sewer Gravity Mains in fields and Public roadways and a pumping station off Chapel Road to accommodate this upgrade.
- The Kinsealy LNRP upgrade project is a key infrastructure project for the future development of the local area.
- The project will have major benefits in terms of protecting the environment and the health of local communities, facilitating economic development and providing for a growing population.
In order to facilitate the efficient and safe construction of the new rising gravity main on Drumnigh Road, a road closure will be in place from Monday 26 October to Tuesday 17 November 2020 from the junction of Chapel Road to the junction of Moyne Road.
There will be no through access on Drumnigh Road during the proposed closure period, access to and from Station Road will be maintained throughout.
When construction works are ongoing on the south side of Station Road, traffic shall enter and exit station road via the northside of the Station Road junction.
Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained throughout the works with cyclists asked to dismount when passing the works.
A further road closure is proposed on Chapel Road from Wednesday 18 November to Monday 30 November 2020.
The alternative route for the period of this closure will be via the R124 Drumnigh Road, R123 Moyne road and R107 Malahide Road.
Think before you flush
Irish Water is supporting Clean Coasts to raise awareness and reduce these issues through the 'Think Before You Flush' and 'Think Before You Pour' campaigns.
Think Before You Flush is a public awareness campaign about the problem sanitary products and other items can cause in our marine environment and our wastewater systems if they are flushed down the toilet.
