WORK is currently under way to install a new water main at Dingle Marina and to upgrade paths and access roads on the breakwater.
The works, which will cost an estimated €40,000, have been on-going over the past month or so and are taking place along the top of the breakwater at the western end of Dingle Harbour, just past the Marina Centre building.
According to a spokesperson from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, the project will also incorporate safety upgrade works along the access route walkway, including edge kerbing and asphalt re-surfacing. Some work is also being done on the rock armour along a section of the breakwater.
Currently a large part of the walkway/access route has been cordoned off from the public, much to the chagrin of locals who have grown accustomed to taking their daily constitutional or jog around the breakwater.
The good news is that the work should be completed by mid-December.
Dingle Fishery Harbour Centre is one of six Fishery Harbour Centres for which the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine has responsibility. These works are funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine under the 2013 Fishery Harbour and Coastal Infrastructure Development Programme.
