Construction Information Services (CIS) recently compiled a report for the CIF which analysed the top infrastructure projects in the transport, water treatment and flood defences sector. Our analysis covers the following areas and highlights the 3-4 year delay on many of these projects due to budget cutbacks:
- Roads, Road Improvement and Upgrades Schemes, Bridges & Metro North
- Runways, Railway Stations, Airport Facilities & Port Terminals
- Water & Wastewater Treatment Plants, Sewerage Networks, Water Mains Rehabilitation & Drainage Networks
- Sea Protection & River Works
CIS estimates that the entire top 119 projects in their report could amount to €12 billion covering transport, flood defences and utility schemes. There are many smaller schemes in each of these sectors outlined above. The analysis does not include capital projects in the education, enterprise, health, justice and communications (broadband) areas. This indicates that the Government’s €27 billion Public Capital Programme will fall short of Ireland’s requirements.
