Ah, that reminds me!

Bandon/Sarsfield Interchanges Upgrade

Progress Update

Thursday 28th February 2013


Piling works in the area east of the Sarsfield Road flyover have now been completed. 4 of the 8 columns required on the eastern abutment of the Sarsfield Road flyover structure have been cast and it is hoped to complete all 8 columns in this area early next week. Preparatory earthworks will continue in the area east of the Sarsfield Road Roundabout over the next few weeks with a view to getting construction of the flyover approach ramp in this area underway as quickly as possible.

At the Bandon Road end surfacing works on the flyover itself are currently ongoing and installation of the sound barrier throughout the length of the Bandon Road flyover is currently nearing completion.

As noted in previous updates surfacing works will be progressed at both the western and eastern tie-in points of the Scheme under weekend working over the next few weeks. As part of this process significant lane restrictions and localised diversions will be in place for eastbound traffic between the Curraheen Road Interchange and the Bandon Road Roundabout over this coming weekend. The restrictions will be in place from 7.30 a.m. on both Saturday 2nd March and Sunday 3rd March – on both days the road will be fully reopened as quickly as possible but it is anticipated that the restrictions will be in place on both days into the early afternoon. Available diversion routes will be signposted and motorists are strongly advised to avail of these alternative routes as lengthy delays are anticipated. Regular updates will be issued over the weekend via AA Roadwatch and local radio stations as the works progress.

If there are any queries or comments in relation to the ongoing works or in relation to the upcoming traffic management arrangements, site staff can be contacted at the above number, on the freephone 24 hour helpline number 1800 932 046 or by email on n25@ccc-site.com.

Surface being laid on Bandon Road flyover. Surely we'll see a phased opening of this scheme.

It wouldn't take much effort to open the flyover for Westbound traffic anyways.

It's now possible to drive from one end of the flyover to the other. All that's stopping you is a few cones and wire fence. Oh the temptation!!!

Progress Update 66:



Bandon/Sarsfield Interchanges Upgrade
Progress Update
Wednesday 20th March 2013


The first two bridge beams for the Sarsfield Road flyover structure were delivered to site on yesterday Tuesday 19th March 2013. The attached photographs show various stages of the beam delivery process, entering the Jack Lynch Tunnel, at the Kinsale Road flyover and at Sarsfield Road Roundabout. A further two beams will be delivered on each of the remaining days of this week including Saturday 23rd March with the beams due to arrive at the Jack Lynch Tunnel around lunchtime on each day.

Night time working will continue over the coming nights as weather conditions allow mainly focused on the eastbound traffic lanes heading east from the Sarsfield Road Roundabout. Lane restrictions will be in place in this area from about 8.00 p.m. each evening but no significant delays to traffic are anticipated.

As always, those with queries or concerns in relation to any aspect of the scheme can contact us on 021-4969280 or 021-4965830 during working hours or on the freephone helpline number 1800 932 046, or by email on n25@ccc-site.com.

Saw the two beams that were delivered yesterday. They're lying in the section between the 2 roundabouts. Only thing I can say about them is they are massive!!! Tried to take a photo on my phone this morning but it was crap due to the sun pointing directly at the phone.

Drove in the Ballincollig bypass yesterday in daylight. Almost tempted to go over the Bandon flyover except for the barriers.

Have to say one thing, the Sarsfield Roundabout since being altered is now very tight. Should possibly have made it larger.

Does anyone know where the bridge beams originated? They are massive and I must say I admire the skill of the guys driving those trucks.
