Road Alignment and Resurfacing Works

RAD 3 and 4

The site is located on Rue a Don between to Checkers Express and Gorey Village Road extending approximately 800 meters in length.

The exiting road comprises of a single carriageway separated into two lanes with two-way traffic. The road has combined footway/cycleway to the north side of the carriageway with a small footpath to the south side.

The primary aim of the pavement works was to replace and strengthen the pavement, as well as improve the ride quality and drainage of the highway. To achieve these goals drainage kerbs, kerbs and gullies were installed to either side of carriageway. Once the drainage works were complete the pavement was then realigned by planing out the old tarmac surface and installing macadam regulating to the new design levels. Once the binder course/regulating course was at the correct level the new surface course tarmac was laid.

Existing inspection chambers and covers were also raised/lowered to suit the new carriageway levels and profile.

The works were spread out over 3 phases to minimise the disruption to the general public.

Phase 3 was the cycle way widening and pedestrian crossing, phase 4 enabling works were the drainage and kerb realignment and phase 4 was the main carriageway works.

Phase 4 required an extensive traffic diversion which was in place throughout the works maintaining access to Gorey Village and the east of the island.

The works were programmed for 12 weeks in total and finished on time and on budget.
