Project Description

Staleen Lock Gates, Boyne Navigation

As part of the Boyne Navigation Restoration Project, Mullacurry Construction Ltd. was contracted to manufacture and install Lock Gates at Staleen Lock. Our engineering team carried out a survey of the existing Lock using a Trimble S6 Total Station and provided manufacturing drawings for the Lock Gates. The gates were manufactured from Ekki Timber in the joinery yard and transported to site. Site enabling works were carried out to allow construction vehicular access to site. Silt/environmental control measures were implemented in order to over pump the lock to facilitate the works. We coordinated the lifting of the new lock gates into position using a tracked telescopic crane. The Project Team worked closely with the Boyne Navigation Restoration Committee to successfully complete the project.
