Access Road at Bishopswood, Dundrum, Co. Tipperary
At this site, Iarnród Éireann manned level crossing number XC128 was replaced by an access road with associated works, boundary treatment, timber post and rail fencing, drainage, filling and surface dressing. Extensive site clearance of existing trees through Coillte owned lands was carried out. The roadway was constructed on very poor ground using geotextiles and geogrid. The geogrid used here was Enkagrid Pro 90 which worked well with the poor ground conditions. The existing level crossing gates were replaced with blockwork wall & a double palisade access gate. A precast concrete culvert, supplied by Banagher Concrete, was installed to replace an existing culvert crossing the new access road.
