The site was located within a floodplain of the River Shannon, an existing flood defence embankment was overtopped and rendered unstable during an extreme weather event in 2014 (intense rainfall coupled with high tides and winds).
- As part of the emergency works Roadbridge worked with Limerick City council and MPP as designers to replace the undermined defences and enhance existing embankments to minimize future flood risks. This included:
- 2,000m2 of Sheet Piling,
- 300 tons of rock armour
- Reinforced Embankment Construction
- Use of impermeable clay layers
