Default Bandon Road Flyover problem?

Work appears to have stopped for a few weeks and there is talk of a major subsidence problem derailing the project. Has anyone else heard anything?

I'd be shocked if this were the case. The problems with various buildings in the area including an apt block knocked down 3 yrs ago after it became seriously unsafe would have been common knowledge to the designers. I presume the site investigations were extensive as a result. Coupled with the fact that geotechnical design codes use a FOS of 3 and I can't see how they could have got it so wrong.

The flyover ramp at silversprings needed a big repair job 2 years after it was built. It sank in places and needed piling

I was wondering what all the augur drilling gear was doing there for the last few months, in areas which are not being piled.

It would not be the first time that borehole data was misleading.

This is a problem that will cost a fortune to sort out - instead of backfilling the ramps, it may finish up being piled.

Ugly and very expensive to sort out mid-contract.

Flyovers cause problems that we can't afford. Build cycle lanes seperately we have the bike frames.

There was never any problem, Just some uneducated guesswork that turned into rumour. Work is flying along, SIAC Construction Ltd. expect to have the project finished early by December.

Finished by December 2012? That would be great.
The estimated completion time on the site is July 2013 though they should finish well before that.

Lad i knew that did civ eng in ucc did work experience when the dual carriageway was originally laid. He said they drilled 50m of bog with no bottom there.

That stretch of road is "floating" on the bog as it is.
