Waterford City and County Council is currently carrying out enabling works for the North Quays project. This is in advance of the main contract works that comprise a new multi-modal Transport Hub, Sustainable Transport Bridge and Access Infrastructure works on Dock Road and Abbey Road.
The enabling works for the North Quays is made up of two contracts. MJS Civil Engineering is currently completing the utility diversion contract while MCB Civils Ltd has recently commenced the demolition and site clearance contract. Rapid and visible progress is now evident on Abbey Road with almost complete demolition of Abbey Road Business Park, adjacent residential property and the former Dunlop site on Ferry Lane.
In the coming weeks works will continue with the demolition of a number of properties on Dock Road. It is anticipated that both enabling contracts will be complete by February 2021, in advance of the main contract works that will be on site mid 2021.
