Corbawn Lane Beach Access Improvement Works

Closed 12 Feb 2016

Opened 9 Dec 2015


The concrete public access structure at Corbawn Lane, Shankill, Dublin 18, has been identified as being at risk of future instability due to coastal erosion. The cliffs immediately adjacent to the access structure are over-steep and at risk of falling onto the beach and the structure itself.

We are proposing to carry out a range of works designed to address the issues of concern.The proposed works consist of:

  • The construction of 240 metres of Cliff Stabilisation Measures at the pedestrian access to the seafront at the end of Corbawn Lane (180 metres north of the structure and 60 metres south).
  • Underpinning the existing Concrete Step Structure.
  • Protection of the base of the cliff using rock armour and concrete wing walls to the existing concrete step structure.


Detailed drawings of the proposed works are available below under "Related Documents".

Submissions or observations with respect to the works, and dealing with the proper planning and development of the area, may be made via the online submission form below.
