The proposed Flood Defence Scheme covers a 3.5km stretch of the River Slaney, extending from 1.5km upstream of Enniscorthy Bridge to 2km downstream.
The proposed scheme combines a number of measures to prevent flooding in the town. These include river channel widening, river deepening, the construction of extensive glass panelled flood walls through the town centre, the removal of Seamus Rafter Bridge which is to be replaced with a new pedestrian bridge in the town centre and the construction of a new road bridge 500m further downstream.
The estimated cost of the project is €40-€45 Million.
