Togher Construction Update - June 2020 


Adhering to government guidance, works recommenced on May 18th.

Over the last month, a series of diversions have been completed along Togher Road:

  • A distribution watermain has been fully installed as well as the private connections.
  • The Scheme Signs haven been erected along two of the access roads to Togher Road. The Signs will remain in place until the completion of the works.
  • 75% of a new stormwater sewer is in place, with final connection to be completed. The existing drainage system is in place and working as usual.

From Monday 22nd June, Togher Road is closed to traffic for a 6 weeks period. Access for residents is fully accommodated. Notification letters were sent in advance to all the businesses and neighbours affected by the road closure. It was also advertised with three VMS signs located at the three entrances to the site over the last 2 weeks.

The remaining works to be completed include:

  • Drilling of 300 meters of the trunk watermain, including connection valves and testing.
  • Completion of storm system and connection to discharging point.
  • Installation of foul line section.
  • Finalisation of underground ESB diversion.
  • Reinstatement of road and footpaths surfaces.

Ward & Burke, Arup, the Office of Public Works, Cork City & County Councils wish to express their thanks to the people and businesses of Togher for their patience and continued support throughout the scheme. We hope you are keeping safe.
