The Environment & Transportation Department of Dublin City Council will be presenting details of the proposed programme of works to improve Liffey Street at a Special Meeting of the Central Area Committee which is set to take place next week.
The City Council envisages seeking tenders from potential contractors in the coming days which should take six weeks to complete and a further four weeks to conclude the selection of contractor. All going to plan, it is hoped that construction work will begin across April and continue for a projected twelve-month period.
The objectives behind the delivery of this project include:
- The project comprises the entire lengths of Liffey Street, between Bachelors Walk and Middle Abbey Street, and Liffey Street Upper, between Middle Abbey Street and Henry Street.
- Refurbishment and upgrade of existing pavement and road surfaces.
- Pedestrianisation of area of Liffey Street (outside Woollen Mills) to form new plaza area.
- Facilitating deliveries to pedestrian streets during delivery hours.
- Provision of additional trees & planting details.
- The site extents have been divided into 7 proposed footway construction workfronts.
- Carriageway works shall be determined by the contractor in consultation with the Employers Representative and the Roadworks Control Division of Dublin City Council in order to minimise disruption to Businesses and the General Public.
- Access to all Businesses and Properties to be maintained at all times for the duration of the works.
- Works in the proximity of Luas Lines as indicated must be completed during night time hours to minimise disruption.
If you have any specific questions or queries arising from the details outlined above, please get in touch with me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com before Tuesday, February 1st next.
