Update: Annaghroe/Knockaginny Bridges

I was able to confirm yesterday that construction has in fact already begun on the bridges at Annaghroe and Knockaginny. The contract has been awarded to Jons Civil Engineering of Duleek, County Meath, who in fact began work earlier in the month. Tom Elliott had suggested on Saturday that work had not yet began on the prject amidst his criticism of the project.

Although Tom Elliott gave a figure of €1.5m, a representative of the Meath civil engineering firm put it at “around a million euro”.

It’s the first cross-border project undertaken by the firm, however the company has an extensive portfolio of work in the Republic,  including the M50 upgrade (N3 to N4 Junctions) and  N2 Finglas Ashbourne Bypas, to name but a few.
