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.
Modernising the wastewater infrastructure in Blanchardstown and surrounding areas and making it fit for purpose is critical as the population of Fingal is growing as is our economy. This project will provide the infrastructure needed to support the building of houses, schools, attract new industry and allow companies to expand and grow.
