Re: Re: cork docklands
I’m not sure if it’s due to flooding, or soil contamination (there probably have been all kinds of oils & chemicals seeping down into much of that earth for decades). If it is due to contamination, what happens if there is any construction in that area, presumably the contaminated soil would all be brought back up to the surface.
3m is a lot! How large an area do they mean?
As far as I know finished floor levels in that part of the city have to be at 3.6m due to flooding risk.
There will be plenty of “fill” available when the Ghost Estates are demolished.
