Network Extension and Upgrade Project
Irish Water Growth and Development Programme
Irish Water, in partnership with Cork City Council, is improving the water network in the South Docklands, Cork City to support the economic and social development of the area.
Irish Water is working in partnership with Cork City Council on a network extension and upgrade programme that will facilitate social and economic growth, including planned residential development, in the South Docks area of Cork City.
The second round of works following completion of cross connections on Anglesea Street in November 2021, involve the construction of over 2.2kms of new modern water mains. Construction works on the new water mains will commence in late January 2022.
The works will be carried out on behalf of Irish Water by Ward and Burke Limited and are expected to be completed in Summer 2022. Works will be delivered in a phased manner as outlined below.
What are the benefits of the works?
- Improve the water network - This project will increase our capacity to deliver reliable, sustainable high-quality water services.

- Provide a more resilient water supply - This project will improve the resilience of the water network in the South Docks, Cork City, increasing connectivity to enable re-routing of water supply as required.
Will customers be affected by the works?
Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. Traffic management may be in place during this time by way of a stop go system. Local and emergency traffic will always be maintained.
Working hours for each phase will be agreed as the project proceeds and communicated by way of regular updates. We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause.
