Grafton Street Part 8 Public Consultation

Dublin City Council will begin the phased replacement of water valves on Grafton Street from Monday 25th February. These are essential works which must be carried out before work can start on the repaving of Grafton Street later in the year. The new water valves will also reduce water leakage in the future and result in a more efficient water supply.

Businesses on Grafton Street and on streets off Grafton Street will experience temporary interruptions to their water supply during these works. Dublin City Council has informed the affected businesses of this and will make every effort to keep the disruption to a minimum.

The city council will continue to keep businesses informed during the phased replacement of the water valves. The council anticipates that the works to the water network will be completed in April.

The main upgrade works for Grafton Street are scheduled to commence in May this year. The upgrade works will include the complete replacement of the existing brick surface which is in very poor condition and its replacement with a high quality natural stone surface, mainly granite. The street furniture, public lighting and other elements on the street will also be replaced.
