Below are all the Glanmire Flood Relief Scheme Updates for 19-02-2024.

Sorensens Flood Relief Scheme Update from Elaine Cronin Sorensen Liaison Officer.


An update on works being carried out in the Glanmire/Riverstown area as part of the Glanmire Flood Relief Scheme.

I have attached a copy of the works to be completed at Hazelwood junction. As you can see, there is a large amount of work to be completed in this area.

This will mean that we will continue to have Traffic Management in this area on going for the next number of months.

Currently we have a 3-way system to allow the works to be carried out for the deep drainage on the R639.

Towards the end of the week, this will revert to a 2-Way system for approx. one week.

The works will then move on to the Hazelwood road L-2966, to carry out further drainage works.

The 3-Way system will be back in place again once this work commences.

Also, we will have Traffic Management on the New Line Road L-2966 between Copper Valley Vue and the junction opposite O’Connell transport, to carry out Site Investigation works.

Works are continuing in Meadowbrook Est, where we are laying new drainage and the constructing a new pumping station.

Also, in Sallybrook Ind Est, where there is ongoing Traffic Management withing the Industrial Estate, to allow the laying of new drainage and a new culvert in this area.

We are continuing to work at O’Conner’s Funeral Home, where we are constructing a new retaining wall, as part of the flood defence design.

If you could leave extra time for your journey, especially during peak times.

Sorensen appreciate your patience as these vital works are continuing.

I hope that the above is helpful, and I am available to meet to discuss any of the works going on in the area.

Also, we have a Free Text Alert system. There is no charge to send or receive updates on the project.

All you need to do is text the word GFRS to 50015.

Of if anyone would like to sign up for email updates, they can email me at elaine.cronin@sorensen.ie

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Elaine Cronin
