UPDATES on the Esmonde Street re-generation project and Courtown railings contract were provided to councillors at the December meeting of Gorey-Kilmuckridge Municipal District.

Consultants RPS are progressing with the detailed design of Esmonde Street, with Priority Geotech Ltd having undertaken site investigation works in September. This information will feed into the design, while Irish Water have approved proceeding with the sewer upgrade and CCTV. Survey works will be procured and RPS are starting work on the design but will require additional site investigation, councillors were told.

The successful tenderer for the railings contract in Courtown was Anthony O’Gorman Engineering Ltd. Works will include replacement railings along the seafront and, as there is a lead-in time of approximately eight weeks on the steel materials, it is envisaged that these final works will not complete until early 2022.

Work on removing the old railings is substantially complete along with approximately 70 per cent completion of the foundations and capping to the wall in the main railing e-tendered project. This project should deliver an integrated public realm experience between village, pier, harbour and Woods.
