  • Simply the enabling works are works carried out prior to the main contract and consist of diverting existing services out of the way of the main construction works as well as heritage works and tree removal And the main works are the construction of the stations themselves, but more of this later in the presentation.
  • There are examples of Metros where both Client and Contractors have got this wrong and lost site of the ultimate aim. Where the needs of the businesses have not been recognized and the works executed without careful planning and consultation. A quick trawl of the internet will bring up examples like Vancouver and Dusseldorf to name just 2. This has led to businesses suffering losses and even closing due to the construction works. There are also examples where this type of construction has been carried out , taking into account local business and delivering significant benefits to the area post construction. Metro North works at St Stephens Green compliment the future vision of the area from Dublin City Council to help create a more pedestrian friendly environment and to promote the area for businesses. We aim to construct metro north whilst such that all the businesses remain and will benefit from the enhance environment We want all of you to be here when the line opens and reap the benefit that Metro will bring as part of a world class transport system that will allow Dublin to develop over the next century.
  • Pedestrian access – life blood of many shops &amp; businesses and maintaining access with Good Quality Walkways that are well maintained is essential. Access for servicing and deliveries is absolutely key to businesses functioning – reminder that there is a new delivery survey in the information packs, update from 2007, it helps us to understand your business and aids us in the planning of the works so if I could ask all of to fill theses in when you have a chance and send them back in the pre paid envelope, thank you. Access to car parks Getting the message across – all the good work is undone if we do not get this message over and the perception is that Dublin is closed
  • Noise- no real explanation need here , we are in a very sensitive Urban environment and our work methods have to reflect this. Limits have been set as part of the planning condition and we have to stay within theses and aim to be better than them Hoarding - Cara will give a presentation following this one Lighting - so that a safe environment is created and customers will still pass by the shops fronts. House keeping – yes we have work to do during the construction but keeping the worksite tidy, removing excavated material as soon as possible once dug, keeping the plant serviced and clean To work in a city city center we have to set the highest possible standards if we wish to have a successful outcome.
  • Read the Slide Enabling works As mentioned earlier the EW works are the works that need to be carried out to facilitate the main works. Duration 8 months, works to start during the school holidays in the area near the school
  • Type of diversions
  • Connect drains from median Install ESB ducts Install Eircom ducts Divert Gas main

  • Footpath remains as is. Access to Garden of remembrance from Parnell square North Less busy with no bus stops these being relocated to Frederick Street North, Cavendish Row and Parnell Street. Agreement with Dublin Bus and An Garda Siochana Area well lit and safe
  • Note that although not fully obvious there ids the existing footpath beside of the buildings
