Boost as new link road opens in Balbriggan

Mayor of Fingal Cllr Anthony Lavin officially opens the Stephenstown Link Road in Balbriggan.

AN important piece of transport infrastructure has been officially opened in Balbriggan.

Stephenstown Link Road runs from Stephenstown Industrial Park from the existing roundabout on the Stephenstown Road to a new roundabout on Clonard Street Road, linking to the back of Millfield and on to the Naul Road.

The project included the construction of footpaths, cycleways, foul and surface water drainage, public lighting and utility services.

Fingal County Council’s investment in the road opens up almost 23 hectares of industrially zoned lands for development with the potential to bring approximately 900 new jobs to the area. 

Balbriggan is only 20 minutes from Dublin Airport and 25 minutes from Dublin Port.  The M1 motorway is two kilometres away from Stephenstown Industrial Park while the nearby M50 makes much of the rest of the country highly accessible and the park a highly attractive environment to potential investors.  

A number of thriving businesses have already made their home in Stephenstown Industrial Park including EEC Hardware, one of Ireland’s top Builders Merchants; Tierney Kitchens specialising in fitted kitchens and bedrooms; and Rockabill Shellfish Ltd, a family-run Irish company specialising in live, fresh and frozen seafood products.

These companies have recently been joined by Techcrete, one of the market leaders in designing, manufacturing and supplying architectural precast cladding in the UK and Ireland, and Grimme Ireland Equipment Limited.

Cllr Anthony Lavin, Mayor of Fingal, said: “It gives me great pleasure to open the Stephenstown Link Road. 

“The completion of this Link Road opens up almost 23 hectares of industrial lands which has the potential to bring 900 jobs to the area and will realise social, community, commercial, economic and family benefits for the town of Balbriggan.”

Fingal County Council chief executive Paul Reid said: “The Link Road is another example of Fingal County Council’s commitment to investing in high quality industrial lands for development thereby creating the potential to bring substantial additional jobs to Balbriggan and enhance the quality of life of potential employees many of whom will live only minutes away while enjoying a harbour town setting.”
