Galway County Council has appointed a contractor for the construction of a new footbridge to provide pedestrian access to Clarin College Athenry.

Galway East TD Seán Canney received confirmation from Galway County Council that Coffey Construction has been appointed as contractor.

He said that they are presently designing the steel structure, which will be fabricated off site.

“The project is expected to be completed by the end of April 2022,” said Deputy Canney.

“I welcome this progress on a project that will provide direct, safe pedestrian access for pupils attending Clarin NS.”

The Galway TD said that it is important that no further delays are encountered and that this project is delivered as quickly as possible.

“I have been working on this project with Cllr. Gabe Cronnelly, my Independent Councillor colleague from Athenry. I also commend Galway County Council who have taken on the project at the request of the Department of Education.”
