Update February 2013: here are links to some L & M Keating web pages on waterways-related projects:
- a pedestrian bridge over the Eglinton Canal in Galway
- dredging the Grand Canal in Dublin (see also below)
- repairing quay walls at the Grand Canal Docks in Ringsend. This was an earlier project than the one shown here.
Here are some photos of waterways projects on which I noticed L+M Keating working in 2012 and early 2013. I’ve also included, and will start with, a couple of pics from 2011. These are from the works at Killaloe, which included new moorings, a walkway and a flash lock.
The next photo shows the firm dredging the Grand Canal in Dublin; this photo is courtesy of Waterways Ireland. I think it’s the same excavator as I photographed in Limerick: it can float, then flood the pontoons around which its tracks revolve.
Keatings are working on the installation of a riverside boardwalk in Limerick. This photo was taken from the far side of the river, ino the sun alas.
Finally, Keatings seem to have been working, late last year, on both ends of the embankment that runs along the west side of the Shannon between Meelick and Portumna.
