An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Una Power said:
This is a great project that will prevent further erosion and in turn will have a positive impact on the environment.
The work includes the installation of Rock armour and coastal protection along the cliff face and on the beach. The Rock is being imported from local building sites in Killiney and surrounding area, this is reducing the impact on the road network and the environment. An ecologist is on site advising on Wildlife and Habitats. Access paths will be provided along the new embankment with access to the beach front.
A temporary site compound will be required. This will be located on the cliff top at the south end of the site. The access for plant and personnel will be made via the harbour road, off Strand Road R766.
It is anticipated that works will finish next Spring.
