Bank Place Bridge Repair Works, Ennis

10 August 2018

Works will be commencing next week on the repair of Bank Place Bridge on L4559 in the centre of Ennis. Triur Construction Ltd. has been appointed by Clare County Council to complete the project.

Rehabilitation works will include the following:

Removal of the existing road surface, vegetation clearance, alterations to gullies,  repairs to the soffit of the bridge beams, patch repairs to the deck slab soffit, cleaning and patch repair of the parapets, repairs to the beams with grout, removal of the existing concrete road slabs, repairs to joints and  resurfacing the road with hot rolled asphalt.

The works are programmed to commence on 14th August and be completed by the end of September 2018.

The road can remain open to traffic and pedestrians during the works. Closure of one footpath at a time will be required during some works and pedestrians will have to use the opposite footpath.

Traffic Management

A Traffic Management Plan will be required to allow work to proceed in a safe manner. Stop/Go boards and/or traffic lights will be used as required.

No parking will be permitted on either side of the bridge during the topside works, starting from the front of AIB Bank and Easons and ending at the front of Bank of Ireland / entrance to Post Office yard, a distance of approximately 65m.

The entrances to AIB Bank, Easons, Bank of Ireland, the Post Office and other premises will be maintained throughout the works. TRIUR note that Bank of Ireland and the Post Office, along with other businesses, are across the bridge from the main part of the town and so a lot of pedestrians will be using the bridge. TRIUR will have a suitably qualified site employee present at all times during the works with the responsibility of monitoring and maintaining the traffic and pedestrian management measures.

All side roads to be catered for with appropriate approach signage according to the distance away from the works area.
