Event description

CIWEM Northern Ireland branch invites you to the first of their technical meetings this autumn. This talk will look at environmental design and the construction of the A6 Randalstown to Castledawson Dualling Scheme.

The A6 Randalstown to Castledawson is a high profile 14km dual carriageway, currently under construction which passes adjacent to the highly sensitive environment of the Lough Beg wetlands; one of the most important sites for overwintering birds in Northern Ireland.

Gareth Coughlin from AECOM and Gareth McLaverty from GRAHAM-Farrons will discuss some of the key environmental constraints associated with the scheme, most notably Whooper Swans. They will also look at how innovative and prescriptive mitigation measures have been factored into both the construction phase and overall design, and some of the practical difficulties and challenges encountered.
