Dollymount Promenade and Flood Protection Project
Dollymount Promenade & Flood Protection Project – S2S Phase 1
Roughan & O’Donovan Consulting Engineers were engaged by Dublin City Council in November / December 2006 to undertake a Feasibility Study and Preliminary Design to examine the feasibility of providing an 6.5 metre wide combined promenade and cycleway on the seaward side of, contiguous and at grade with the existing James Larkin Road, linking the North Bull Island causeway and the Wooden Bridge at Dollymount.
The overriding design parameter of the project is the provision of a promenade, cycleway and flood defence. The principle design constraint of the scheme is the ecological importance of the South Bull Lagoon. Coastal Flood Protection measures have also been included as an integral part of the design of the Dollymount Promenade & Flood Protection Project.
An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was submitted in June 2009 to An Bord Pleanála for Planning Approval. The EIS was granted approval subject to conditions by An Bord Pleanala in December 2011. Construction Commenced on the project in May 2015.
