Mungret LIHAF Project Update

Sorensen is delighted to have been recently awarded the Mungret LIHAF Stage 2 project which is being delivered on behalf of our client Limerick City and County Council. The project involves the construction of two new link roads with associated infrastructure works. On completion the new link roads will facilitate future housing development and a new school. Works on site have just commenced and the project is programmed to run until late 2023. We look forward to delivering this important project for the Limerick Region.

Dinish Wharf Project Update

Works on the new quay deck are now fully complete and will soon be handed over to our client for their operational use, which will be welcomed given the heavy volume of activity in this busy port. All concrete works have now been completed on the western breakwater with the eastern breakwater concrete works to follow-on after completion of the rock armour. Ancillary works such as drainage, fencing and ducting are currently ongoing. This challenging project is really starting to take shape now that we move closer to completion!


Glanmire Roads Improvement Scheme Project Update

Works are ongoing in Glanmire with significant progress being made recently with the improved weather. Works at East Cliff Road are completed and the road was reopened following the installation of services, surfacing works and a new public lighting system was installed.

Along the Dunkettle Road the 450mm drainage pipes were installed, a section of the boundary wall was constructed and the remaining site clearance works have now been completed. In the coming weeks a new foul sewer, storm sewer and watermain will be installed along the Dunkettle Road and further sections of the boundary wall be constructed.

Within Glanmire Village a new boundary wall has been constructed to the business park whilst installation of numerous services has been completed in the past number of weeks. Over the coming weeks there will be significant changes, the new section of widened road will be kerbed and surfaced, traffic will be diverted over to the new section of road to allow further works to commence along the R639. Over the coming weeks there will be significant traffic management controls implemented on the R639 between Church Hill & Glanmire Bridge. it is advised that motorists should use alternative routes if possible. The team wish to thank the local residents and business for the cooperation during the works to date.

N70 Brackaharagh Road Project Update

After a busy few months for our site team on the N70 Brackaharagh Road Project in Kerry, we are ready for the installation of wearing course in late June. The works will be completed just in time for the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle on Saturday 2nd July, a remarkable achievement by the team to achieve this milestone on a challenging project and in such a short space of time. Road markings, signage, road restraint and snagging will follow in July prior to handover to Kerry County Council soon after. Well done to our team once again!
