CONSTRUCTION is underway on a local road project that aims to improve safety and environmental benefits.  

Fingal County Council has appointed SIAC Construction Ltd who will deliver the Hole in the Wall Road/Mayne Road Junction Upgrade scheme.

The project involves the realignment of the junctions of the Mayne Road with the Hole in the Wall Road and Drumnigh Road. 

It will create a much safer road layout for all road users by providing improved sightlines and new signalised crossing facilities, as well as new footpaths and cycleways and road pavement reconstruction.

Speaking at the announcement, Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien said infrastructure upgrades such as the Hole in the Wall Road/Mayne Road Junction Upgrade scheme are necessary for supporting the development and growth of the area. 

“These upgrades will provide a safer and sustainable infrastructure for the road with new footpaths and cycleways that will create a supportable environment for all users,” he said. 

Flood management measures and new water supply network infrastructure is also included. Construction started on February 10 with a 14-month work programme.

AnnMarie Farrelly, chief executive of Fingal County Council, said: “This project will further underpin the ongoing sustainable development in the area including in those lands earmarked for development under the Baldoyle-Stapolin Local Area Plan.”

Director of Planning and Strategic Infrastructure Matthew McAleese said: “I am delighted to see this project, which is being co-funded by Fingal County Council and the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government under the Rebuilding Ireland (Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund) LIHAF initiative. 

“With the ongoing construction of badly needed new homes in the area, developments such as, these are timely to ensure the future sustainable development of the area.”

Senior Engineer Paul Carroll said: “This project will result in the removal of two sub-standard junctions and the creation of a safer road layout with lower speeds, significantly improved sightlines for drivers, and improved facilities for pedestrians
