Navan Sewer Network Improvement Project

Uisce Éireann Growth and Development Programme

Uisce Éireann to invest in upgrade to wastewater infrastructure to facilitate new housing development in Navan and Limekiln.

Uisce Éireann, working in partnership with Meath County Council, is progressing a major project to upgrade and improve the wastewater network, by constructing new sewer connections along the Dublin Road in Navan, Co Meath.

The project, which is due to begin next week will involve the upgrade of over 235 meters of new sewers along the R147 Dublin Road in Navan, and the project is expected to be completed by mid-October.

When complete, this project will:

  • Support future economic growth and development
  • Facilitate new housing development for Navan and Limekiln
  • Improve the capacity and performance of the existing sewer network
  • Provide additional capacity within the network for new development and forms part of the greater Strategic Sewer Scheme for Navan.


To deliver these works efficiently and safely, temporary lane/road closures will be necessary during the works. The sections impacted by these closures include a lane closure along the R147 from Monday, 15 August until Sunday, 11 September 2022 which will be in place from the Athlumney Abbey bus stop to the Springfield Glen/Bothar Sion junction.

An additional lane closure will be required south of the junction from Monday, 26 September until Friday, 14 October 2022, while a road closure will be required along the Bóthar Sion Road from Monday, 12 September until Sunday, 25 September 2022.

To minimise the impact on the local community during construction, a phased approach will be taken. Areas of work will be limited to short sections to limit the impact on the local community. Where works are along the public road, traffic management will be in place in the form of a stop/go traffic light system and diversions. Local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times. Where potential road closures are required, Uisce Éireann will ensure communication is provided locally.
