Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): Information on Batt O'Keeffe  Zoom on Batt O'Keeffe  Following an application by Enterprise Ireland (EI), planning permission was granted by An Bord Pleanala on September 27th 2010, for a new vehicular entrance to their site on Old Finglas Road, Dublin 11.

The purpose of this new vehicular entrance and associated works is to facilitate the continued operation of the National Metrology Laboratory of Ireland, (NML) as a stand alone entity, on the Glasnevin site, following its transfer from EI to the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI). The completion of this work is critically important to allow the NML operate in an efficient and secure environment.

Following a competitive tendering process a contractor was selected and has now commenced work on the project. The value of the contract cannot be disclosed due to its commercially sensitive nature.
