Drogheda Boyne Viaduct Refurbishment Project

The major refurbishment of the Boyne Viaduct in Drogheda is now complete on time and on budget.

Over €6.1m was awarded to the refurbishment of the Boyne Viaduct in Drogheda, a railway project that will significantly enhance the transport infrastructure of the region, benefiting cross-border services. Financed through the European Union’s INTERREG IVA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).

Originally built in 1885, the viaduct is part of the main Dublin-Belfast railway line and is in need of prioritised investment to ensure its long-term efficient operation. 

The completion of this project will now enhance one of our main cross-border infrastructure links, thereby supporting trade and tourism development for a more prosperous and sustainable region.

Match-funding for the project has also been supplied by the Department for Regional Development (DRD) in Northern Ireland and the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) in Ireland. 

The project involved a number of essential refurbishment activities including:

  • Steel repairs
  • Full re-painting
  • Renewal of work over the viaduct  
  • Waterproofing of the deck
  • Installation of a new drainage system.
