Calls for Irish Water to delay works on Clanbrassil Street and Bridge Street until 2017
Democrat REporter

Fianna Fáil TD for Louth and East Meath Declan Breathnach has called on Irish Water to delay the works planned on the water main rehabilitation project in Bridge Street / Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk until 2017 when the rejuvenation and refurbishment of the area is due to commence.

“I have had calls from a number of business owners in the Clanbrassil Street area of Dundalk, Co. Louth about a notification they received from Irish Water dated 30th August informing them of commencement of works starting from middle to late September.”

“They are concerned that these works will drag on and will be very disruptive to business in the busiest trading quarter of the year. The works will involve traffic management, diminished access to premises and will put people off coming to the area to shop.”

“I have asked Irish Water to consider delaying the commencement of these works so that they could be carried out at the same time as the planned refurbishment of Clanbrassil Street. There is a rejuvenation scheme planned for the whole area which has been approved for funding and which is due to commence in 2017.”

“It would make sense to execute the water main rehabilitation project in conjunction with these works so as to lessen the disturbance and impact on affected business owners.”
