Corrib Gas Pipeline Tunnel


Construction of the 4.9km Corrib tunnel under Sruwaddacon Bay was constructed by a joint venture between BAM Civil and Wayss & Freytag.

Works on site commenced in February 2012 with the construction of the launch pit in Aughoose.

The tunnel reached its destination in early May 2014. This 4.9k tunnel is the longest tunnel in Ireland

Upon completion of the tunnel, a 20” gas pipeline was installed along with a number of other services before the tunnel was backfilled.
