Ennis Inner Relief Road Contract Is Signed
Work on a long awaited inner relief road in Ennis, County Clare, is scheduled to commence next month, it was announced today.
June 15, 2012 (FPRC) -- Ennis Town Council has signed a 360,000 euro construction contract with Gildoc Limited to provide for the construction of 180 metres of single carriageway road, footpaths and services including new traffic lights at Station Road and Clare Road.
The Ennis Inner Relief Road Section E contract, which will be delivered by Ennis-based Liam O’Doherty Building Contractor on behalf of Gildoc Limited, will commence in July and is scheduled for completion by late September 2012.
Mayor of Ennis Councillor Michael Guilfoyle stated: “I would like to compliment Ennis Town Council for delivering this project which many had feared would not go ahead due to the current fiscal constraints. However, the necessary funding has been secured to ensure the delivery of what will be a very beneficial infrastructure project for Ennis Town Centre. It will complement similar road projects in recent years, including the section of the Inner Relief Road from Station Road to Francis Street and the Ennis Bypass, in further reducing traffic congestion in the Clare County capital.”
“Once completed, the new road will link Station Road at Madden’s Furniture to Friar’s Walk, the Causeway, Clare Road at Cathedral Court,” explained Eamon O’Dea, Ennis Town Engineer.
He added: “This section of the Inner Relief Road will improve traffic flow to the town centre for customers and visitors to Ennis, and will reduce traffic congestion in the Station Road and Upper O’Connell Street area of Ennis.”
