Tipperary County Council has appointed GLAS Civil Engineering Limited to carry out a road pavement rehabilitation scheme which also incorporates safety improvement measures. This scheme extends along the N24 through Carrick on Suir. It commences at the Tipperary/Kilkenny County Boundary to the east and terminates at the 50kph Speed Limit at the western side of the town. The scheme passes through Three Bridges, Tinvane, Beech Avenue, Pill Road, Greenside South, O’Mahoney Avenue, Well Road and Clonmel Road.
• Improved safety for pedestrians, cyclists and vulnerable road users;
• Reduced noise;
• Improved landscaping;
• Reduced traffic speeds;
• Improved road surfaces;
• Improved footpaths and crossing points.
This scheme was subject to planning approval under the Planning and Development Regulations and was approved by the District Council on 23/07/2020 following a public display and consultation period.
The rehabilitation Works will involve the removal of between 100mm and 250mm depth of road surfacing and it’s replacement with new surfacing material. The safety improvement works will involve the realignment of kerbing at a number of locations, reducing the carriageway width in locations, footpath repair and replacement, upgrading and landscape planting. At O’Mahoney Avenue a full road pavement reconstruction will be required along with the laying of new drainage pipelines.
The Works will progress in sections of approximately 500m in length, commencing with footpath and kerbing works followed by pavement rehabilitation. The Works are carried out in this manner in order to minimise disruption to residents, schools, shoppers and through traffic.
The Works are to be completed in approximately 18 months. During this period temporary traffic management will be required in order to ensure the construction work is carried out safely amidst live traffic. Access to all properties and businesses will be maintained throughout the period of the Works.
Works of this nature will cause some disruption, but it is the Council’s and the Contractor’s intention to minimise this as far as possible. In order to ensure the safety of the public and the Workers, we request the co-operation and patience of all during these works.
If any member of your household requires any special assistance during these works please contact the Council and we shall seek to provide any assistance that we can.
Property owners will be contacted in advance as the scheme progresses.
We are preparing to commence works on the ‘N24 Carrick on Suir Pavement Scheme’ on Monday 22nd of August in conjunction with Tipperary County Council. Works will be ongoing in Carrick on Suir for a duration of approximately 18 months.
These works consist of re-construction of the existing carriageway, installation of new drainage and service ducts, upgrading of footpaths and pavements, installation of new street furniture as well as extensive landscaping.
We endeavour to minimise the disruption we cause during these essential works, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience that may be caused. If you have any immediate concerns or queries in relation to the works, please do not hesitate to contact me at the number below.
