Progress on new Donacar­ney foot­path

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

LO­CAL Fine Gael Coun­cil­lor, Sharon Tolan, has ex­pressed re­lief that the much needed foot­path from Bet­tys­town to Donacar­ney is pro­gress­ing.

“Fol­low­ing my con­tin­ued rep­re­sen­ta­tion in re­la­tion to this foot­path, I have now been in­formed that ten­der doc­u­ments have now been com­pleted, and Meath County Coun­cil have gone to ten­der for the con­sul­tants for the de­sign of the foot­path/car­riage­way up­grade/farm­ers un­der­pass, that will run from Bet­tys­town Cross to Donacar­ney Pri­mary Schools.

‘There is not a week that goes by with­out con­cerned par­ents con­tact­ing me, or drivers men­tion­ing the dan­gers of pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists along this route. It is cru­cial that this foot­path is de­liv­ered as a mat­ter of ur­gency to en­sure that chil­dren can get to school in Donacar­ney safely, and res­i­dents of Donacar­ney can ac­cess Bet­tys­town by foot or bi­cy­cle safely also.

‘ This is a step closer to de­liv­er­ing an­other critical piece of in­fra­struc­ture for East Meath and I will con­tinue to work with the En­gi­neers in the Coun­cil to en­sure this pro­ject pro­gresses as swiftly as pos­si­ble.” com­mented Tolan.
