South Tipperary Fine Gael T.D. Tom Hayes has welcomed the news that the building work at Comeragh College is to be brought forward from the original 2015/2016 date. The news was contained in the Government’s Infrastructure Stimulus Programme announced recently.
“A portion of the stimulus package has been assigned to the Comeragh College project and will ensure that work will begin well ahead of schedule. Staff at the college have been waiting a long time for this new school to go to construction and I am delighted that it will now do so ahead of schedule.
“Today’s announcement will mean that €2.25 billion is to be pumped into the Irish economy, making significant investments in roads and schools across the country and creating 13,000 jobs nationally. This announcement represents an important investment in our future through the provision of top class educational facilities, reform of our healthcare facilities, enhancing our roads which will improve travel helping us to transport people and goods more safely and efficiently.
“The projects included in this package will be delivered through Public Private Partnerships (PPP) securing value for money for the Exchequer while delivering on projects that will significantly benefit towns and cities across the country. “Creating jobs is this Government’s number one priority and I look forward to seeing the benefits today’s announcement brings to Comeragh College and South Tipperary” concluded Tom Hayes.
