M1 Motorway Upgrade Works

M1 Motorway Upgrade Works
Client Fingal County Council / Siac Construction
Value €9.0 million
Value our Works €3.4 million
Dates Feb 2012 to May 2013

Project Description

This famous landmark infrastructural project adjacent to Dublin Airport consisted of two separate sections of work; the first being the installation of an additional motorway lane to both existing carriageways. The second part of the works involved a full online upgrade of the interchange at Junction 4 whilst maintaining live traffic at all times. The scope of works involved substantial drainage operations in excess of 4.5km in length, with sizes ranging between 225mm and 1200mm in diameter at depths up to 4.50m. All works were undertaken in a live traffic environment and called upon substantial traffic management with daily changes to varioguard and fencing layouts to suit the proposed works without affecting or disrupting the live traffic. It was also necessary to undertake road crossings at night which involved reducing carriageways to just one lane. All traffic flows had to be back to normal by 6am the following day.
