Irish Water to keep local communities informed of major pipeline project

IRISH Water has provided an update on the Leixlip Transfer Pipeline project, which includes parts of the Dublin 15 area.

The company says this is a strategically important wastewater project that will support economic and social development of Leixlip and the surrounding area.

The project involves the construction of 13km of new wastewater pipelines from Leixlip to Blanchardstown, as well as a new wastewater pumping station in Leixlip Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

The majority of the works will be carried out on agricultural land. However, some construction works will be necessary in St Catherine’s Park and Littlepace Park. Access to both parks will be maintained throughout these works and every effort will be made to minimise the impact on local communities. 

All works in the parks will restricted to specific areas and will be overseen by an ecology expert to ensure the biodiversity in the parks and surrounding areas are protected, according to Irish Water. 

Survey works are expected to commence in the coming weeks. Construction works will follow on and are scheduled to start in early summer and will take approximately 24 months to complete.

BAM Civil limited is delivering these works on behalf of Irish Water. A community liaison officer will be available for the duration of this project and will, with the project team, continue to engage with the local residents and other stakeholders.
