Ferrybank's Abbey Road to close for seven weeks as part of North Quays works

Ferrybank's Abbey Road will close for a period of seven weeks to facilitate the North Quays Development works.

The North Quays Public Infrastructure works are funded with a public investment of €207m, including €100.6m of Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) funding and following cabinet approval, a further €70m from the Department of Transport through the National Transport Authority (NTA).

The works include enhanced multi-modal access routes, a public transport hub including the relocation of Waterford train station to the North Quays, a sustainable transport bridge and extensive flood defence system.

The sustainable transport bridge will link the relocated train station to new walking and cycling infrastructure.


These works, through the delivery of enhanced and integrated sustainable and active travel infrastructure, will reduce the reliance on private car and facilitate alternative modes of transport for those accessing the city centre.

Separate contracts for new foul and stormwater pumping stations in Ferrybank are now completed.

The next phase of road infrastructure works will proceed to the Abbey Road area in Ferrybank.

Deep excavation work on Abbey Road necessitates a temporary road closure.  To minimise disruption, these works have been scheduled during the school summer holidays and local access will be facilitated.


From June 28th to August 16th 2024, Abbey Road will be closed and traffic will be diverted to the N29 / Port Road.

Waterford City and County Council apologises for any inconvenience caused.
