Glanmire Bridge Wastewater Pump Station Upgrade

Uisce Éireann Growth and Development Programme

Uisce Éireann is upgrading the wastewater infrastructure in Glanmire to support future growth and development in the area.

Uisce Éireann is committed to playing its part in the national drive to provide homes by developing and prioritising the delivery of water and wastewater infrastructure. 

Uisce Éireann is progressing with upgrades to the wastewater pumping station (WwPS) near Glanmire Bridge, to cater for the future growth and development of the wider Glanmire area. These works are being carried out as part of Uisce Éireann’s Growth and Development Programme and are expected to commence in June 2024.

The upgrade of the existing WwPS will provide the required wastewater infrastructure capacity to support future social and economic growth in the area.

The works will be carried out on behalf of Uisce Éireann by Geda Construction and are expected to be completed by the summer of 2025.

What are the project benefits?

  • Supporting social and economic development

This project will facilitate social and economic growth, including planned residential development.

  • Improving the wastewater network

Upgrade works will increase the capacity to deliver reliable, sustainable high-quality wastewater services.

Will customers be affected by the works?

Works will be confined to within the existing pump station site which is accessed from the East Cliff Road adjacent to the Glashaboy Estuary. Advance site access signage will be in place on East Cliff Road.

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. Standard working hours are 7:30am to 6:30pm, Monday to Friday.

We do not anticipate any planned interruptions to water supply, however if a water outage is required to facilitate the works, affected customers will be notified 48 hours in advance.
