Abbey Road / Fountain Street Junction, Ferrybank, Waterford

As part of the North Quays Public Infrastructure contract, Bam is currently carrying out works at Abbey Road and at the Abbey Road/ Fountain Street junction.  We recognise these works are causing disruption and inconvenience for local residents and commuters but every effort is being made to limit the disruption and ensure the safety of all concerned.  The situation is continually monitored and to help ease traffic movement, from mid-February until June 2024 a second lane from Abbey Road onto Fountain Street will temporarily be opened.

We appreciate your continued patience and cooperation while this extensive infrastructure project progresses, when works are complete it will deliver a new realigned section of Abbey Road with increased capacity, while the footprint of the existing Abbey Road will be recreated to a cycle and pedestrian friendly local road access for the schools and nursing home located on this section of the road. A direct access to the new South East Greenway will also be created.

Sustainability & Public Realm

NORTH QUAYS will contribute to transform Waterford into a smart sustainable city by using information and communication technologies (ICTs) and other means to improve quality of life, efficiency of urban operation and services, and competitiveness, while ensuring that it meets the needs of present and future generations with respect to economic, social, environmental as well as cultural aspects.

North Quays features a well-pre planned public realm that will establish a community identity, enhance public safety, encourage private investment and allow citizens to embrace and celebrate their places and spaces. Committed allocation by  Urban Regeneration Development Funding and National Transport Authority funding secures North Quays three key infrastructural elements : 

  • Sustainable Transport Bridge 
  • City Centre Access Infrastructure
