In welcoming an allocation of €115,000 for a proposed footpath and roadworks programme within the urban area of Cashel over the next few months, Cllr Maribel Wood is hoping that a long awaited footpath for the lower area of The Green can be constructed before the Town Council is abolished in June 2014.
From this years Block Grant a brick footpath with limestone kerbing will be constructed on north Main Street adjacent to the bus stop and the fountain and existing 19th century limestone slabs will be retained.
Brick footpaths with limestone kerbing will also be constructed between the AIB and Bank of Ireland and Agars Lane and Barry’s office on John Street. The total cost of this work is €58,000, according to Cllr Wood.
A further E57,000 will be spent on tarmac overlay and road marking between The Green and Sunnyside with improvements to the surface texture in the vicinity of Camus Road and the Circular Road also planned. Manholes will be raised and signage installed at various locations around the town.
