The contract, which requires both land and in- river works, involves the drilling of cable percussion and rotary core boreholes, excavation of trial pits, excavation of slit trenches, geophysical surveys and associated temporary traffic management.

Also required in the contract is in-situ testing, laboratory testing and production of a factual ground investigation and contamination assessment reports.

The Contractor shall also be required to act as project supervisor construction stage (PSCS) for the duration of the investigation works.

The new proposed Blood Stoney Bridge will be a pedestrian and cycle-only across the River Liffey, and will provide a new crossing point in the Dublin Dockland Area

When completed the bridge will act as an opening bridge to allow river traffic to pass through when required.

Construction work is due to commence in 2019.
