An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD has turned the sod on the ‘Site Infrastructure and Public Realm’ part of the re-development of the Grangegorman site on Dublin’s northside.

The €26m contract, which has been awarded to Roadbridge by the Grangegorman Development Agency, involves over 200 construction workers on site, providing the underpinning services that will enable the build out of the new development.

The Taoiseach said the project would be “transformative” for Dublin’s inner city in terms of higher education, health, community and enterprise.

Supported by European Investment Bank, it is the biggest development of its kind in any European capital city.
