Road closures in Athenry this week to disrupt traffic

Galway daily news Seven week road closure in downtown Galway City

There are ongoing road closures in Athenry this week to enable resurfacing works connected with sewerage replacements.

To facilitate work on the Athenry Sewerage Scheme Network Upgrade Project, the L3112 (Boys School Road/ Carnakelly Road) on Wednesday.

Once the work on the L3112 is complete, the L3107 (Caheroyan/Monivea Road) and Caheroyan Avenue will be closed for approximately five days.

These closures will only occur during the daytime, with local and emergency access maintained throughout. Diversions will be in place and can be viewed on the attached map.

Uisce Éireann’s Programme Manager Colm Claffey thanked the community for their patience and co-operation in advance of the works.

“Uisce Éireann acknowledges that diversions can be inconvenient for the local community and our crews will make every effort to minimise disruption to the local community.”

“We are confident that the short-term inconvenience will be outweighed by the long-term benefits upon completion of this sewerage scheme.”

“Once completed the scheme, will not only reduce the risk of sewer flooding and address non-compliant sewer overflows into the River Clarin, but it will support future social and economic growth in the area.”

The €13 million Athenry Sewerage Scheme Network Upgrade Project involved the replacement of four kilometres of sewer pipeline, along with the construction of a new pumping station at Pairc na hAbhainn.
