Wicklow Minister Simon Harris is glad to announce that Wicklow County Council have confirmed that they will commit to reconstruction works in Glencormack being a top priority.
Minister Harris said, “A number of weeks ago, I began engaging with Wicklow County Council in order to address the issues involving the road between Kilcroney Lane and Rocky Valley Drive in Glencormack.”
“In recent works for Irish Water, Wicklow County Council acknowledged that the road was badly damaged.”
“I am glad to announce that Wicklow County Council yesterday confirmed that they have committed to prioritising the reconstruction of this section of road, which has become prone to flooding due to damage to the road’s drainage and road edge.”
Wicklow County Council will begin the tender process once the Road Grant Allocation for 2023 has been confirmed.
Minister Harris continued, “These reconstruction works will include the installation of new drainage along with filling in the existing roadside ditches to facilitate the installation of a future footpath.”
“I am eager to ensure that this momentum is kept up and am committed to working with Wicklow County Council, and the local community, who have been instrumental in progressing this issue.” Minister Harris concluded.
