Ireland’s Largest Port Infrastructure Project Gets Green Light

An Bord Pleanála, the Irish Planning Authority, has granted planning permission for the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR) Project – the largest port related infrastructure project in the history of the Irish State.

The project will enable Ireland’s premier port to double its trade capacity to 60 million tonnes per annum by 2040. It will also enable the largest cruise liners in the world to safely berth in the River Liffey Channel at the heart of Dublin City.

The project involves the creation/rehabilitation of 3km of quay walls, new berthing facilities and a capital dredging scheme which will deepen the navigation channel within Dublin Bay to a ruling depth of -10m CD.

RPS was commissioned by Dublin Port Company to develop and deliver the €230 million ABR Project through the feasibility and planning stage of the project, including Engineering Design and preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement and Habitats Directive Assessment.

The planning application, supported by an Environmental Impact Statement and Natura Impact Statement, was submitted to An Bord Pleanála under the Strategic Infrastructure Act.

The successful granting of planning permission has allowed Dublin Port Company to advance the project to the construction phase.
