Tunnelling Ahead at the Blanchardstown Regional Drainage Scheme Project - ByrneLooby International Engineering Design Consultancy
26 Feb 2020
Working alongside our partners Irish Water and Ward & Burke Construction Limited, we recently welcomed the arrival of a tunnel-boring machine on site. Tunnelling has started on the construction of 3.2km of new wastewater network within the Tolka Valley Park. This technique ensures that the impact on the park and its users is kept to a minimum.
This project represents an investment of approximately €88 million by Irish Water and will involve the upgrade of the existing sewer network currently serving Blanchardstown, Mulhuddart and Castleknock, as well as a number of towns in Meath including Dunboyne, Clonee, Ashbourne and Ratoath.
