IRISH ENGINEERING FIRM BEGINS DESIGN OF SCOTTISH BY-PASS

Written by Robert McHugh, on 21st Jul 2017.

 

Eamon on a BridgeAn Irish consulting engineering and environmental scientists firm involved in the design of Scotland’s second largest wind farm, has now won a major infrastructural project just north of Glasgow.

It’s one of the largest roads projects the diverse Irish firm has ever undertaken in Scotland and a major boost to the firm’s 50 plus staff based at its Cork and Dublin offices and elsewhere.

The project involves the design of a new off-line bypass to the east of the town of Dalry in Ayrshire and associated junctions to connect to the existing A737 trunk road.

The 279 MW Kilgallioch Wind Farm is the largest wind farm recently completed in Scotland and its second largest ever. It includes 96 turbines and when complete and has the capacity to power 130,000 homes.

The works will see engineering staff at the Cork-headquartered firm design the bypass, with roundabouts at Hillend and Highfield, and a 250 meter viaduct over the River Garnock and the Glasgow to Ayr railway line. Design works are also required to connect the new bypass to the existing A737 trunk road east of Highfield.

Speaking yesterday, Fehily Timoney MD, Eamon Timoney said, “This is a fantastic win for our team. We’ve also looking at a number of other significant Transport Scotland roads projects – including the A9. It’s all in line with our corporate strategy of focusing our personnel and expertise in Northern Ireland and Scotland. This will continue as we wait for the Irish infrastructural market to recover. This project win may not lead to significant new hires right now but it boosts our profile in Scotland and it allows us to retain our diverse, experienced team.”
