BANK Place Bridge in Ennis will undergo repair works over the next six weeks.
Clare County Council says the rehabilitation works on the 17-metre long bridge will be completed by the end of September.
Pedestrian access to businesses and premises on Bank Place and on Bindon Street will be maintained for the duration of the works while vehicular access will be maintained under a Stop/Go and Traffic Light system. No parking will be permitted on either side of the bridge from Easons/AIB to the Post Office, during the topside works.
The works, which are being carried out by Triur Construction Ltd. on behalf of Clare County Council, include removal of the existing road surface, vegetation clearance, alterations to gullies, repairs to the soffit of the bridge beams, patch repairs to the deck slab soffit, cleaning and patch repair of the parapets, removal of the existing concrete road slabs, repairs to joints and resurfacing the road.
