€100k for footpath works in Tulla


FOOTPATHS in Tulla are to be upgraded, thanks to a significant allocation from The Active Travel Fund.
Designs are being drawn up currently, with works due to get underway early next year.
“Around €100,000 has been secured,” Chairperson of the Killaloe Municipal District, Councillor Joe Cooney confirmed.
“Some works have been done in the past in Tulla, but some of the existing paths are now in bad condition. I’ve been working on this issue for a number of years and the funding is very welcome.
“Clare County Council is drawing up designs. We had hoped that the works would start before the end of 2021, but with the pandemic and other factors, it will now be the first quarter of 2022 when the works begin.”
Councillor Cooney added that in light of the ongoing development of Tulla, improvements to local infrastructure were particularly important.
“Tulla is thriving and there’s lots of development underway” he said. “It’s fantastic news now that the funding has come through to improve the paths.”
The district Cathaoirleach also confirmed that works on paths in Broadford will start very soon.
“Householders will be contacted,” he said. “Sections of paths in need of repair are being addressed and this is very welcome news.”
