ROYAL CANAL GREENWAY (DUBLIN CITY END) – PROGRESS REPORT




The following update is thanks to Cllr. Ray McAdam on his website.
"Since my last update on the delivery of a dedicated cycle and pedestrian route along the Royal Canal, a number of issues have arisen which have delayed construction work on the project to begin. Dublin City Council has added the upgrade of a road junction to the Phase II programme of works. The initial phase of the tendering process has now been completed with Council officials expecting the second stage to start in November. All going to plan, it is anticipated that construction can begin on March 29th 2018. In terms of Phase III of the project, between the North Strand Road and the Phibsborough Road, the Council has had to review the documentation surrounding the cost of the project, meaning that tender documents should now be issued in December 2017. It is anticipated that the Contractor will be on site before the end of April 2018. The project requires certain approvals from Waterways Ireland. We have made the relevant submissions to Waterways Ireland. It is normal that most decisions are referred to the North South Ministerial Council. The absence of a Government in Stormont poses a serious risk to the start date. The Contractor cannot start until all licences and easements from Waterways Ireland are in place."
Thanks Ray for the update.
