Croom Concrete has supplied over 150 linear metres of box culverts to the flood relief system in Clontarf Co. Dublin.
The system which is being installed by the office of public works includes culverts ranging from 1.5mts sq to 2.1mts sq. The installation took place in the Summer 2014 in the grounds of Clontarf Golf Club. This project took place under the Arterial Drainage Act 1945 and the Arterial Drainage Amendment Act 1995.
The purpose of this system is to “minimise the flood risk exposure of households and businesses from coastal flooding”. The golf course’s 12 hole green is to be raised by over two metres and set back into the mound in order to avoid flooding after the relief works are complete. Any proposed works will be undertaken on a zero cost basis to Clontarf GC. Overall OPW were very happy with the culverts and the service supplied by Croom.
