Tramore Water Network Improvement project
Irish Water Growth and Development Programme
Irish Water, in partnership with Waterford County Council, is improving the water network in Tramore to support the economic and social development of the area.
Irish Water is working in partnership with Waterford County Council on a network improvement programme that will facilitate social and economic growth in the Tramore area.
The works involve the construction of approximately 700m of new modern water mains. Construction works on the new water mains will commence in mid November 2021.
Works will take place on the Monvoy Road approximately 50m north of the Monvoy roundabout and continue on the Ring road to the Racecourse roundabout.
The works will be carried out on behalf of Irish Water by Shareridge Limited and are expected to be completed by late December.

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 however works are being undertaken in the roadside verge. Pedestrian access may be limited to one side of the road. Local and emergency traffic will always be maintained.
The works may involve some short-term water interruptions and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to any planned water interruptions.
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.
