No funds for Del­gany scheme

Bray People - - NEWS -

THERE IS NO FUND­ING at this time to com­plete the NTA pro­ject in Del­gany Vil­lage. This in­for­ma­tion fol­lowed a no­tice of mo­tion by Cllr Jen­nifer Whit­more re­quest­ing an up­date on this, as well as Chapel Road and Kil­coole Road projects.

The coun­cil said that it will con­tinue to use in­ter­nal re­sources to bring the pro­ject to pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion. It said that there is a need to fi­nalise a de­ci­sion re­gard­ing the widen­ing of foot­path on the main road ei­ther with the in­stal­la­tion of traf­fic lights to re­duce road to sin­gle lane to en­able this widen­ing or ac­qui­si­tion of ad­di­tional lands to widen the road.

‘We have gained fund­ing to widen the foot­path along a sec­tion of Chapel Road for 2016. Dif­fi­cult to put time­lines on this as landown­ers’ agree­ments de­pen­dant but would be ideal to con­struct dur­ing the sum­mer hol­i­days. Ini­tial dis­cus­sions were rel­a­tively pos­i­tive but need to move to­wards agree­ments and fi­nalise cost­ings. It is planned that this would be con­structed us­ing the WCC di­rect labour sec­tion so no time de­lays with pro­cure­ment.’

Fund­ing has been al­lo­cated for the Kil­coole Road foot­path scheme, but landown­ers’ agree­ments are un­der way. Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start late in 2016.
