Waterford City and County Council are inviting submissions and observations, in writing, from interested parties regarding a proposed bridge across the River Suir which will provide a new sustainable transport link between the North Quays and South Quays, promoting the further development of Waterford City and facilitating the development of the North Quays Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) lands.
To this end, a Public Consultation event will be held in:
The Granary building, WIT School of Architecture,
Merchants Quay, Waterford,
Wednesday, 18th July from 4pm to 8pm
The design of the proposed bridge will be developed, modified and refined as a result of consultation, including public consultation and submissions and feedback from stakeholders; further detailed investigations, including environmental, land, and geotechnical surveys; ongoing refinement of the design and assessments by the various environmental and technical specialists.
Over the coming months the Project Team will continue to undertake all of the various environmental and technical assessments with the objectives of avoiding, reducing and remedying potential impacts. This process will culminate in the publication of the Statutory Orders and the applicable environmental reports in accordance with the relevant legislation for the development consent process.
Staff from Waterford City and County Council and Roughan & O’Donovan Consulting Engineers project design team will be on hand on the 18th to answer queries and provide information on the project. The purpose of this consultation is to present the proposed bridge design to the public. Information leaflets will be available.
