Del­gany by­pass work to start in early 2009

Bray People - - Special Report -

AF­TER a 25-year wait the peo­ple of Grey­stones and Del­gany may fi­nally see the com­ple­tion of the Del­gany by­pass.

Wick­low County Coun­cil con­firmed the Com­pul­sory Pur­chase Or­der at the eleventh hour for the by­pass.

The Coun­cil were short of money and there was a con­cern amongst some of Grey­stones Town Coun­cil­lors that the Com­pul­sory Pur­chase Or­der would not pro­ceed.

The Com­pul­sory Pur­chase Or­der had to be con­firmed by the Septem­ber 18 or it would have to start again.

It was con­firmed on Septem­ber 17 and work on the short sec­tion to link Del­gany Wood with Con­vent Road should now start in early 2009.

Dur­ing the 25 years the pop­u­la­tion of the area has grown from about 7,000 to 20,000.
