EU to invest in the development of the Port of Dublin

Date: 13/11/2014

The EU's TEN-T Programme  will co-fund with almost €2.5 million studies on the capacity development in the Port of Dublin to improve the freight traffic connection to the main rail and road axis linking Ireland to the UK and continental Europe .

The project covers a set of preparatory studies for the construction works of the Alexandra basin redevelopment (ABR) global project  with the aim to increase the port's capacity and adapt it to customer needs, mainly in the freight sector. After the completion of works the port will be able to accommodate larger ships and provide them with multipurpose berths for multiple transport modes.

The studies include planning, environmental impact assessment, hearings on the project, economic and financial assessment, preparation and application for all relevant permits, licenses and consents, as well as procurement of detailed design services and documentation for the construction phase.

The project was selected for EU funding with the assistance of external experts under the TEN-T Multi-Annual Call 2013 , priority projects. Its implementation will be monitored by INEA , the European Commission's Innovation and Networks Executive Agency.

The project is to be completed by the end of 2015.
