Below are all the Glanmire Flood Relief Scheme Updates for 19-04-2024.

Good evening,

I am contacting you with the latest update on the works being carried out by Sorensen Civil Engineering.

Hazelwood Shopping Centre

  • Works are almost complete for the installation of the new drainage within the Hazelwood Shopping Centre.
  • Currently, we are at the entrance beside Bean & Leaf, and are hoping to be finished here by Wednesday 24th of April.
  • There is full pedestrian access to the Shopping Centre, and vehicles can continue to use the top entrance to access the lower section of the centre.
  • We would like to say a very big thank you to all the businesses with-in Hazelwood for their continued patience and cooperation as these works are being carried out.

Riverstown Road- R639 & Ballincrossig- R615

  • Sorensen would like to acknowledge that the traffic lights in this section have been difficult over the last number of evenings. This has been caused by a number of factors, including the timing of the lights.
  • Currently our team are working hard to get this section open for the weekend, which will minimise the disruption in this area.
  • From Monday 22nd of April, the 3-way traffic management will be in place in the below locations (shown in YELLOW), with the timing of the lights adjusted when they are in place from 7pm – 7am.
  • We would kindly ask that drivers observe these lights, especially in the later hours of the evening, as to keep the traffic flowing during the busier times (from 7pm – 11pm) the sequences are going to increase, to allow more vehicles through each phase. It is imperative that drivers do not break these lights, as this may result in an accident.
  • There will be stop/go with operatives from 7am – 7pm, and traffic lights from 7pm – 7am going forward.
  • We would like to thank all road users for their patience during these works.

Copper Valley Vue

  • Work is progressing well in this area, with the installation of the final section of the Bailey Bridge (temporary bridge) being carried out next Monday 22nd.
  • There will be traffic management within Copper Valley Vue next week.

New Line

  • The team working on this section will be working 24hrs 7days a week from next Monday 22nd April for this coming week
  • There will be traffic management in place with operatives from 7am – 7pm and traffic lights from 7pm – 7am.
  • Again, we would kindly ask drivers to observe the traffic management, for the safety of other motorist, the large number of pedestrians, and Sorensen staff working in this area.

The above information is subject to change, and I will update you again if there are any changes for the coming week.

On behalf of the entire Sorensen team, I would like to thank residents, businesses, pedestrians and motorists for their continued patience, support, and cooperation.
