The OASIS project marks another step forward in the regeneration of Omagh town, improving access to the River Strule and maximizing the recreational potential of this natural amenity. It included the development of a pedestrian and cycle path along the river bank between Bells Bridge and the Strule Bridge, the installation of a pedestrian/cycle bridge to create a link into the town centre, and the creation of a recreation and meeting space above Drumragh Car Park.
The pathway links the Riverside Walk and Cycle Path at Bridge Street, improving pedestrian and cycle access around the town, while the bridge across the river from the Drumragh Avenue car park into Old Market Place will provide a quick and easy access into the Omagh town center. The project also included the creation of a new and exciting Public Space where large numbers of people can socially interact through work and recreation. Plans are for the development of a plaza type area, raised above the existing car park, where people can meet, browse market stalls, watch children play and relax in a modern vibrant environment.
SDG Construction Technology supplied FP McCann with a wide range of products throughout the project duration including the Grace Pieri Architectural Formliner, Deflex Mechanical Movement Joints and Calenberg Sliding Bearings
