Temporary Closure of Slipway Adjoining N65 Bridge Road - Portumna

Notice Number 4 of 2018

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters, owners of vessels that, following a review of the ESB Shannon Forecasting Model and an inspection of water levels at Portumna, Galway County Council will install flood defence barriers across the slipway adjoining the N65 Bridge Road in Portumna between Emerald Star & WI Offices.

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters, owners of vessels that, following a review of the ESB Shannon Forecasting Model and an inspection of water levels at Portumna, Galway County Council will install flood defence barriers across the slipway adjoining the N65 Bridge Road in Portumna between Emerald Star & WI Offices.

While these barriers remain in place the slipway will not be available for normal operations.  

These measures are being introduced in an effort to ensure the N65 roadway in Portumna remains free from flooding and open to traffic flow during the current severe weather conditions. 

The flood defences in question will remain in place while a flood threat exists to the adjoining N65. 

Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their co-operation in this matter and will advise once flood defences have been removed.
