Client:Cork County Council
Cumnor Construction Ltd. carried out the role of Works Contractor and PSCS for this project.
The project required the replacement of culverts over water and on busy trafficked roads. The works consisted of the demolition of the existing structures, the installation of new box culverts in precast concrete and the construction of insitu concrete to include rubbing strips.
The contract was carried out in environmentally sensitive locations. Temporary diversion of watercourses was required. A water management plan was prepared. Prior to any diversion routes being implemented, it was firstly required to remove/relocate all fish using electro-fishing techniques. These works were carried out in liaison and under the supervision of The Fisheries Board.
The project also involved dealing with river and tidal flows, installation of bed lining and Rock Armour, realignment of utilities, road reinstatement and ancillary works. New masonry parapet walls were constructed. Concrete kerbing works, footways and a new road formation were built.
