Signing of Contracts for work on Mullantiboyle Bridge


ON Wednesday last the Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Ciaran Brogan signed contracts for the commencement of work on the Mullantiboyle Bridge, Glenties.

Mullantiboyle is a twin span concrete bridge of which one span collapsed in 2010.

The bridge provides a vital link around the town and following a sustained campaign by local residents for its reinstatement, Donegal County Council was delighted to receive funding in March this year to replace this dilapidated bridge with a new wider 25m single span structure and associated works.


The bridge was designed by Roughan and O’Donovan Consulting Engineers and following a tendering process, the Council has appointed Ward and Burke Construction Ltd to undertake this work which will cost in the region of €520,000 excluding VAT.

Works on site are now imminent and the bridge will be completed in early 2016.
