Expenditure in the region of €140,000 on footpath reconstruction and road works in Cashel town over the coming months has been welcomed by Mayor Maribel Wood who has regularly raised such issues over the past two years.
Brick footpaths will be constructed between the Bakehouse and City bar on Main Street, at various locations on John Street and between the junction of the Dualla Road and the Parish Church on Friar Street.
New concrete footpaths will be provided in McCann Street, at the Deerpark Road cul-de-sac and outside the Deanery School on the Old Road where the boundary wall will also be set back. Councillor Wood is also hoping that an area of footpath in the vicinity of the bus stop on the north side of Main Street can also be attended to as its in a dangerous state. A new pedestrian crossing will be provided at the Friar Street/ Main Street junction, the existing brick ramped area on Main Street will be reconstructed and a buildout kerb installed at the Community School Pedestrian Crossing.
She is also very pleased that the County Council has decided to allocate in excess of 21,000 euro for a safety improvement scheme in the vicinity of Scoil Aenghus on the Cahir Road. This work will include a built-out kerb to reduce speed, dropped kerbs, footpath improvements, road markings and signage.
Meanwhile Councillor Tom Wood has welcomed the recent works carried out by the County Council in the vicinity of the rugby club complex on the Old Road.
