Progress on new Donacarney footpath
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.
