    service area at Gorey Co Wexford The design process for this project has considered all social environmental and economic impacts From a general overview the completed project will significantly minimise traffic disruption at this renowned hotspot thereby improving journey times and in turn providing economic benefits not only for local businesses in south and west Dublin but nationwide It has for instance been well reported in the media that the construction of this flyover has eliminated the final traffic lit junction on a road journey from either Cork or Limerick to Belfast Furthermore enhanced safety benefits for pedestrian traffic have been introduced as part of the scheme in the form of cycle and bus lanes and pedestrian crossings Of particular note was the approach adopted for the design and construction of the random rubble limestone clad approach walls and abutment to the structure which is a feature that is sympathetic to the locality The design developed in agreement with the National Roads Authority NRA consisted of precast concrete reinforced earth units cast with limestone facing whereby these pre formed items could be installed with significantly reduced safety risks for site manpower and road users as well as associated programme benefits which has enabled opening of the bridge to traffic some 2 months ahead of schedule The pier crosshead beam for this structure was precast which needed to be designed and constructed in two pieces due to craneage weight limitations This form of construction was used to minimise traffic disruption and reduce health safety risks to staff who would otherwise have been carrying out time consuming work in a heavily trafficked environment This posed a number of technical difficulties due to its design geometry and construction From a design perspective the need to comply with the stringent 0 1mm crack width limits imposed by the Irish National Annex and the design of the post tensioned connection between the in situ pier and precast crosshead proved challenging see attached drawings illustrating the details of the post tensioned connection The crack width was only an issue in the temporary situation and was overcome by the introduction of temporary propping prior to placement of the remainder of the in situ concrete pier diaphragm and deck Geometrically the shape of the crosshead was far from standard and the end profile while aesthetically pleasing proved difficult to detail and required 3D techniques to resolve accurately Forming the post tensioned connection between the piers and crosshead required a high degree of accuracy both in detailing and construction This is best illustrated in the photographs attached The need to have the reinforcement coming out of the piers completely vertical and positioned and aligned to match up with the formed opes in the precast crosshead required 3D coordination and a high degree of construction control Using an in situ concrete crosshead would have resulted in an easier construction method where the starter reinforcement cast with the pier columns could be anchored into the in situ crosshead however the negative
