2000: Courtown Village Renewal


Courtown is a popular tourist destination on the Wexford coast and is about an hour's drive from Dublin. In 1999, the village qualified for the Urban Renewal Scheme and since then over 2000 new houses have been built in the area and a number of major leisure developments have also been completed. These developments coincided with a major effort by Wexford County Council to upgrade the main drainage and sewage systems in the village and this was followed by extensive work on the footpaths, kerbing, gulleys and public amenities by Niall Barry & Co. The contract for re-surfacing all of the main streets and thoroughfares within the village was awarded to Bennett Tarmacadam. This included shaping using regulation course macadam, overlay wearing course and line marking. The project involved a surface area of approximately 8,000 square metres and was completed in May 2000. Please note that the above photos were taken in November 2003, approximately three years after the original work.
