Leitrim County Council in conjunction with the OPW and Roscommon County Council is progressing a Flood Relief Scheme for Carrick on Shannon and Cortober. Leitrim County Council have appointed consulting engineers Ryan Hanley to progress this scheme.
The outline Scheme Area for this project is the town of Carrick on Shannon and Cortober which has a history of flooding from the River Shannon. The Shannon CFRAM study identified Carrick on Shannon as an Area for Further Assessment (AFA) and concluded that a flood relief scheme would be viable and effective for the community. The consultants will progress the engineering and environmental elements of the project throughout the following five stages:
•Stage I: Option Assessment, Scheme Development and Design,
•Stage II: Planning / Development Consent Process,
•Stage III: Detailed Construction Design, Compilation of Work Packages and the preparation of Tenders for Contracts,
•Stage IV: Construction Supervision & Project Management Services,
•Stage V: Handover of Works
