On Wednesday last the Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Ciaran Brogan signed contracts for the commencement of work on the Mullantiboyle Bridge, Glenties.

 

Mullantiboyle is a twin span concrete bridge of which one span collapsed in 2010. 

 

The bridge provides a vital link around the town and following a sustained campaign by local residents for its reinstatement, Donegal County Council was delighted to receive funding in March this year to replace this collapsed bridge with a new wider 25m single span structure and associated works.

 

The bridge was designed by Roughan and O’Donovan Consulting Engineers and following a tendering process, the Council has appointed Ward and Burke Construction Ltd to undertake this work which will cost in the region of €520,000 excluding VAT. 

 

Works on site are now imminent and the bridge will be completed in early to mid 2016.
