Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

ARK­LOW has been awarded a €15,000 grant for new bus shel­ters.

The fund­ing is be­ing made avail­able through the Com­mu­nity En­hance­ment Pro­gramme 2019 and will be used to bus shel­ters for the Ark­low Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict. The 2019 pro­gramme favoured age friendly ini­tia­tives. Cllr Peir Leonard welcomed the an­nounce­ment.

‘As a mem­ber of the LCDC com­mit­tee, I am de­lighted to have been part of the com­mit­tee which voted in favour of this long over­due ad­di­tion to our town. Many peo­ple com­mute to hos­pi­tals, work and col­lege daily through wet, win­ter months and these shel­ters will now hope­fully make their jour­neys dry and more com­fort­able.’

Cllr Leonard also thanked the staff of the Ark­low Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict for their work.
