The Sutton to Sandycove (S2S) project is a scheme comprising elements of two projects, the Dollymount Promenade & Flood Protection Project (DPFPP) and the North City Arterial Watermain (NCAM), both of which have planning approval from An Bord Pleanála. Subsequent to the planning approval by An Bord Pleanála of the DPFPP in December 2011, Dublin City Council (DCC) and the National Transport Authority (NTA) received Part 8 Planning approval for this Interim scheme in May 2013. The scope of works includes the construction of two new sections of retaining wall and improvements to the existing sea defence wall.

The section of the project involves the construction of 2 km of cycle track, additional flood protection measures and the laying of a trunk water main. The wall is required to protect against coastal flooding in this area. In a coastal area deeper water level will generate higher waves. With large portions of Bull Island likely to be flooded in the future due to a rise in sea levels, this section of the coastline will be much more exposed to wave action and the wall height is the minimum recommended to combat this.
