Waterways Ireland wishes to advise Masters of Vessels and users of the Grand Canal that Kildare Co Co Greenway Phase 1 will commence on 17 October 2022 and continue until 11 October 2023.
There will be limited public access to the towpath on the Southern side of the Grand Canal from Sallins village to Ponsonby Bridge near Ardclough from 17/10/22 to 11/10/23.
Section 1 of the greenway works will take place from Sallins to Devonshire Bridge with the towpath closed from 17/10/2022 to 02/06/23. Section 2 of the greenway works will take place from Devonshire bridge to Ponsonby Bridge with the towpath closed from 19/05/23 to 11/10/23.
The greenway works includes a footbridge being constructed over the Grand Canal village at the Waterways Ireland serviced moorings near the primary school in Sallins. The bridge construction works are expected to commence in January 2023 with abutment excavation and construction and then a bridge lift. Ramps will be constructed for access to the bridge on both sides of the canal. Several mooring spaces at the Waterways Ireland serviced mooring jetties will be vacated for the duration of the bridge construction works. The bridge works are expected to be completed by May 2023.
All vessels on passage through Sallins from January to May 2023 should proceed with additional caution during the bridge construction works.
Further Marine Notices will be issued in due course to provide updates as the works progress.
Waterways Ireland thanks Master of Vessels and canal users for their understanding in relation to this matter.
