The following extract is from Consultant Engineers GHD who conducted the tests on the Clonbern Road Upper Level Carpark on December 14th, 2018:
"Eight locations were load tested. The result of these tests has been positive
- All locations tested for mid span bending, deflected to a maximum value of 10mm, this is within the set limits and can be considered safe.
- All locations tested for near support shear had no failure. Couple of locations were measured for if any increase in the crack width, there was no increase in crack-width. Therefore, the carpark is safe under shear loading.
Considering the above load test results, the upper carpark can be reopened. Weight of cars parked on upper deck to be limited to less than, 2,500kg at all times".
