Project Updates

Significant progress has been achieved during the second quarter of 2018 on the M11, N30 and N80 Link Road.Our main focus is to progress further with the Pavement works and also to construct all the local side roads that are crossing over the mainline by the end of 2018 and to make these roads available for public use.

Update:

  • The majority of Earthworks have been completed for the M11 & N30 sections of the scheme, with some works remaining, mainly in the N80 Link Road section.
  • At the Northern part of the New M11 road near the existing Clogh roundabout, the new Junction works are at a stage where Temporary Traffic Management will be put in place shortly in order to allow for the connections from the new road to the existing M11.
  • The new road alignments for Tinacross and Ballicarigeen on the M11 section have opened to traffic, and more roads are expected to reopen during the Third quarter of 2018.
  • Drainage works for the carriageways are well underway.
  • Pavement works are ongoing and significant progress has been achieved during the summer months.
  • 20 Bridges have been completed to date. Our target is to have all main bridges completed by the fourth quarter of the year.

Pavement

The pavement works consist of preparing the final surface of the road which will be durable and suitable to bear vehicular traffic.

When we reach the final level of the earthworks – formation, more layers are added each one very important for the durability of the road.

At this stage in our project we are at the formation level and we are working with CBM (which stands for cement bound material). This layer is prepared with a machine as shown in the photo on the right, and has also to be compacted and covered with further bitumen layers.

For a more detailed description of the pavement please read our Issue 11 newsletter, which can be found here.

General Public Health & Safety

We are aware of the public interest on this important project and we would like to thank the people, who through forums like Boards.ie and other platforms are following the progress of the works and how the construction activities are changing the landscape of the area. Our construction teams and subcontractors do their best to deliver this project according to the highest standards and on time for everyone to use.

It is also very important to be aware that the land being developed for the M11 Gorey to Enniscorthy project is not open to the public until the road is completed.

There are significant dangers that could be present on a construction site, especially at this stage of the works with multiple construction crews and subcontractors on site, working on earthworks, drainage, pavement, barriers and finishing works, resulting in heavy construction traffic.

For your own safety, remember – construction sites are “No trespassing zones”. Please do not enter this Site at any time.
