News that Tipperary County Council has allocated €13,000 to install pedestrian barriers at the Convent Primary School in Newport has been welcomed by local councillor Cllr Fiona Bonfield.
“This follows on from representations that I made with the council in conjunction with the board of management of the school and the local Gardai. The school is very busy every morning and afternoon and this investment is essential for the safety of all,” she said.
The Labour councillor has also been told that €15,000 will be spent on the L6009 at Carrowkeale in Newport to carry out drainage works.
“This is welcome news for the residents, and follows on from meetings that I attended with the district engineer and the residents recently,” she said.
In addition, Cllr Bonfield has confirmed that drainage and footpath repair works will be carried out on the main street in Silvermines while works on the undergrounding of cables on Main Street, Ballina, will proceed this year.
