Recent drone footage illustrating progress on our Marina Park – Phase 1 Project. From the latest aerial shots, you can see the landscaping is progressing steadily and the park is starting to mature nicely. Sorensen hope to complete the project later this month and we look forward to officially opening the park to the public in Autumn 2021 on behalf of our client Cork City Council.
Sorensen are delighted to announce that we have signed the contract with the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine for the Dinish Wharf Completion Works project. Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD, presided at the signing for the final phase of the quay development project on Dinish Island, Castletownbere.
Works are due to commence on site shortly, the project will double the workable quay space on Dinish Island and will deliver approximately 2.2 acres of highly usable reclaimed quay storage area, two new major breakwaters at the entrance to the harbour, dredging of the navigation channel and the syncrolift making the boatyard more accessible for larger vessels. An inner basin is also being created which will provide an ideal future development area for a small craft harbour to the benefit of small fishing vessels and leisure craft.
Sorensen are delighted to have been recently awarded the Half Moon Lane Upgrade Scheme by Cork City Council. The objective of the works is to upgrade the South Douglas Road and Half Moon Lane junction, allowing safe passage for pedestrians and road users to access the Tramore Valley Park at the bottom of the Half Moon Lane. These works include the upgrading of footpaths and carriageway, installing new traffic lights to create a signalised junction and ancillary road works. This new entrance to Tramore Valley Park will be a great asset to the local community when complete.
Sorensen’s site team are making great progress on our slipway project on Dinish Island, Castletownbere, Co Cork. A Spud Leg Barge has been mobilized in recent days to complete the works in conjunction with Marine Specialist Ltd. We are on target to hand over the new slipway to the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine in September 2021.
