Coal Quay Upgrade Works Dublin Port

Marine & River
€3 million
Dublin Port Company
Berths 46 and 47 within the Dublin Port Operational Zone (Coal Quay) is positioned on the south bank of the mouth of the River Liffey, approximately 2km downstream of the East Link Bridge. It provides space for metal recycling, the import of cement replacement products and vegetable oils, as well as other forms of bulk materials.


The berths had fallen into a state of disrepair over many years of heavy industrial use. The project called for the removal of the existing road pavement, historical crane rails and existing dilapidated infrastructure. The pavement surface was then replaced with a high strength concrete pavement, making use of silica fume, together with replacement of sub surface specialist import pipe infrastructure, drainage and power supply ducting. The works also required installation of new bollards, ladders, quay edge restraints and lighting upgrades to assist with future operation of the berths.


DBFL provided the full design service with pavement design, support structures for the new metal recycling area, drainage design and coordination of specialist services.
