€400,000 allocated to upgrade of N3 - M50

Friday, December 17, 2021

Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) has just announced the greenways and roads allocations for 2022. Fingal county council has been allocated €1.1 million of which €400,000 is for the upgrade of the N3 to M50 road.

In total €616m of Exchequer funds have been provided for national roads in 2022 (regional and local roads are allocated separately). The funding allocations are made having regard for the National Development Plan 2021-2030 (NDP), which balances investment in transport against other priorities of Government on housing and health.

Fingal has been working in collaboration with Meath County Council and TII, to develop a multi-modal transport scheme along the section of the N3 between the M50 and Clonee. This will help to relieve congestion and focus on improving long term access to public transport with bus connects. It will also see the upgrade the the Castaheany interchange.

The proposed development will improve journey times and reliability of the N3 corridor which will support the sustainable economic development of the wider region. It will also enhance safety for all road users on the surrounding local road network by improving the operational efficiency of the N3 corridor. The provision of an inbound bus lane and reduction in queuing times will facilitate an increased modal share for buses along the N3 corridor.

Friday, February 19, 2021

Irish Water, working in partnership with Fingal County Council, is progressing essential infrastructural works at Deerhaven Park, Littlepace, Dublin 15. When completed, these works will provide a safer and more secure water supply to homes and businesses in Dublin 15.

Works will start on Monday March 1, 2021 and are scheduled to be completed within 8 weeks. Works are being carried out by Carty Contractors Limited on behalf of Irish Water and will be delivered in adherence with current government and HSE advice on Covid-19.

In order to safely facilitate the works two water outages are scheduled to take place from 8am to 8pm on Wednesday 3 March and Tuesday 9 March 2021.

While these works are ongoing customers in Dunboyne, Loughsallagh, Clonee, Stirling Road, Damastown, Littlepace, Williamstown, Allendale, Ongar, Mount Symon, Portersgate, Hartstown and Lohunda will experience a water outage. Following the completion of the works it may take a number of hours for the network to refill and for normal water supply to return to all impacted customers.

These works are part of a national upgrade programme and will involve the construction of a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) Chamber and other essential works off the existing pipeline which runs through Deerhaven Park. These chambers will allow significant water conservation and savings to be made in the Dublin 15 area as well as improved water pressure for residents. Works will include the installation of key water infrastructure in the green area of Deerhaven. The park area will be fully reinstated following the works. All chambers will be made flush with the existing ground and no items will protrude over the ground.

Furthermore, works involving the installation of electrical ducting will be carried out close to the existing Kiosk on the green. The park area will be fully reinstated following the works. All chambers will be made flush with the existing ground and no items will protrude over the ground.
