Bantry Sewerage Works
Construction works on the Bantry Wastewater Treatment Plant is underway and contracts have been signed for Contract 1 (Civil Engineering Contract) and Contract 2 (Mechanical & Electrical Contract). Construction started earlier this year and is programmed to be ongoing for approximately 18 months.
The project is being managed by Mott MacDonnald Pettit Consulting Engineers and by Cork County Council’s Water Services Investment Programme Project Team under the direction of Mr. Noel O’Keeffe, County Engineer.
The project involves the construction of a Wastewater Treatment Facility capable of treating effluent from a population of 6,000 people. The project also involves the upgrading of the pumping stations located adjacent to Wolfetone Square and the construction of approximately 3 km of pipework.
While the construction works will bring some disruption and delay to traffic, the preparation of detailed Traffic Management Plans will help keep this disruption to a minimum. Cork County Council will liaise with all stakeholders involved to ensure that any potential disruptions are flagged at an early stage and mitigation strategies are put in place.
