Works continue apace at Dublin Bay's newest pier and small boat facility at Dun Laoghaire.
Work on the new jetty, works to the new sea walls, works to the Pavillion and works to tie into the existing walkway at Newtownsmith are all underway at the old bath site adjacent to Dun Laoghaire's East Pier.
Works to the new jetty are nearing completion with a plinth in place ready for the statue of Roger Casement to arrive on site.
The new jetty has created a new viewing point with stunning vistas across Scotsman’s Bay to Sandycove Harbour.
The new long bench on the jetty has been also been completed and this has allowed the rock armour facing the East Pier to commence.
The construction of massive new sea walls supporting the new walkway at the back of the pavilion is well underway. Underpinning and stabilisation of the foundations to the old Pavilion building have been completed and the basement plant room is complete.
While significant progress has been made in all these areas overall progress in constructing the council say work is slower than anticipated. A combination of factors has contributed to this including a requirement to stabilise the retaining walls that support the Queens Road difficulty in constructing the jetty and the new sea walls.
As a consequence, the project is now likely to be completed in late Summer 2020.
