Construction of pedestrian and cycleway bridge

Commencing on 03 May 2022

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all masters of vessels and waterways users that the construction of the Athlone pedestrian and cycleway bridge will commence on 03 May 2022. The pedestrian and cycleway bridge will be built approx. 50 metres upstream of Athlone town bridge.

The navigation channel in the vicinity of the in-water works will be restricted to a width of 15 metres from 03 May 2022. Both sides of the navigation channel will be buoyed with temporary makers. Large barges, workboats and other equipment will be operating in the navigation from Wansboro’s field (upstream of the Railway Bridge) to Athlone town bridge.

Masters of vessels are advised to proceed with additional caution in the vicinity of the works and to follow the instructions of safety craft and personnel in the area.

Phase 1 of the project commencing on 03 May 2022 involves the installation of a cofferdam which will take approx. 4 weeks to complete. Details of further phases will be advised in due course.

Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their cooperation.
