14:46 Thursday 5th of April 2018
This is the incredible footage of the works currently being undertaken in Osberstown as part of the multi-million euro Sallins Bypass project.
This weekend just gone was a busy one for workers as a new Underbridge has been installed under the main Cork to Dublin rail line.
The Underbridge was constructed in pre-cast concret sections beside the rail line over the last few months by contractors Sisk and Irish Rail in association with Kildare Co Council and the Department of Transport, Sport and Tourism.
Work to assemble the structure into position began just after midnight on Good Friday morning and the track was reinstated by 10am on Easter Monday.

The railway embankment was excavated and pre-cast concrete units were installed.

A full railway shutdown for 84-hours was required for the works.
