Tullamore Public Realm Enhancement Works Commencement Date
Tullamore Public Realm Enhancement Works to commence in January 2019
David Walsh Civil Engineering Ltd. has been contracted by Offaly County Council to undertake Tullamore Public Realm Enhancement Works.
The project includes the phased public realm improvement works to High St, Bridge St, Columcille St, Millennium Square and O’Connor Square. The works to High Street and Bridge Street will involve the undergrounding of the existing overhead wires together with the removal of existing poles. The existing street lighting will be replaced with new feature light poles. The existing footpath will be replaced and widened at particular locations. Road reconstruction and surfacing will also be undertaken on a phased basis.
To facilitate the works on High Street and Bridge Street it will be necessary to restrict traffic to a One-Way Outbound traffic management system. Traffic will be prohibited from travelling inbound from Cormac Street & O’Moore Street and traffic will be redirected towards the town center via alternative detour routes (see map overleaf). It will not be possible to facilitate on-street carparking, while the one-way system is in operation. Once the works progress past the Tara Street entrance, two-way traffic will be facilitated between O’Moore Street and Tara Street only (between A and C on the map overleaf) to allow local traffic access to the Bridge Centre carpark.
Works are to commence on High Street (from the junction with O’Moore St.) from Wednesday 2nd January 2018. The one-way system will be in operation from this date and will remain in place up to the end of June 2019.
Please note that during the above works, there will be some disruption as the work in the footpath moves past doorways / entrances, however we will endeavor to keep this disruption to a minimum.
