Projects finished next year 2010

Projects finished next year 2010

Postby murrmurr » Wed May 13, 2009 1:14 pm

I was having a discussion with a friend the other day, who was adamant that
projects/construction was slowing down in all areas.

Naming quite a few that will be completed by next year, are there any others I'm missing
that I could have mentioned?

- Convention centre
- M50
- new law courts
- grand canal square (theatre and new hotel)
- samuel beckett bridge
- new luas lines finished (point village, citywest, cherrywood?)
- monte vetro

The track works on the Kildare line will be finished either at the end of this year or the start of 2010.
Commuter rail to Dunboyne is supposed to be finished in 2010 (I can't see it happening though)
All the Interurban motorways will be finished
Unfortunately, the City West line won't be finished in 2010. Possibly in 2011
The Expansion of Cork Commuter services to Midleton (August 2009)
The Start of Intercity rail services between Limerick and Galway (August 2009)
By the end of 2010, cunstruction should be underway on all remaining luas and metro projects ( again, can't see that happening that soon)
Airport Terminal 2 is to open in April 2010
Integrated Ticketing Service is long over due, but will perhaps make significant progress in the next 18 months
IÉ want to start work on the interconnector in 2010 (but this is unlikely)

I don't think construction is slowing down but it will by 2011 as we're coming to the end of a cycle and right now very little new stuff is breaking ground. The only major ones that are coming up (hopefully) are Metro and Interconnector and the Galway-Cork motorways. Apart from that we'll need to wait for an economic recovery before you see anything else.

Terminal 2, landsdowne and Cork to Midleton yes.


Metro, Interconnector and the Galway to Cork motorway... c'mon who are we fooling here???

We are in the midst of the beginning of a recession which in ireland has meant the avoidance of investment in "non-essential" items such as essential infrastucture.

On the bright side traffic on the M50 will become relatively lighter just as the increased capacity comes on line and the traffic impact predicted for Ikea might happen to be closer to reality

So do you dislike it because of its vapidity or its formalism? Or perhaps its unintentionally unresolved aesthetic drive? Or even the ineluctable modality of its visibility?

Sure, looks great from the dual carriageway. However, I always see it from the Luas.....it doesn't look so good from the rear. It presents a blank wall looming over the Eircom Building.

The new Waterford cable-stayed bridge will complete this year.
The Limerick tunnel farce is due in 2010.
More IFSC and Sandyford office/apartment completions or abandonments as there are many cranes in place in both sites.

What is going to be built in that massive hole beside our version of the Burj al-Arab? There have been cranes and builders working away at it for some time with very little in the way of identifiable structures emerging. Are they building underground car-parking before building new blocks of residential and commercial development or is it something else?

Aha i found it it, http://193.178.1.117/index.asp?locID=582&docID=4130

Apparently the area is called heuston south quarter and the burj al arab building is apparently called the brunel building. All the developments in that area are in the link.

I pass the Heuston scheme every day. It's really quite big. However it's quite nice walking past it from the RHK. There's a nice finished quality to some of the buildings as well as the paving, etc....

Gas, but the "Burj al Arab" building's curved prongs at the top don't join, intentionally so too, I suppose.

I believe that it is going to be some kind of low rise hotel - it is beind the gardens at Kilmainham so i guess it can't be towering over them.

I moved into HSQ a couple of months ago and i dont think much (that is visable anyway) has been done with it to be honest.

The Times building on Fleet St/D'Olier St should be completed by 2010. They had a crane above the site doing what seemed very little for a year or so. The building is shooting up at the moment and it should be filled out by 2010.

Explain? I'm not aware of any issues with the tunnel and I've been following it closely.
