A project to deal with flooding that has badly affected parts of Ennis previously has gone to tender.
Minister For Employment and Small Business Pat Breen has said he is satisfied that progress is now being made on the Ennis South Flood Relief Scheme.
It’s understood that tender documents will be going out to contractors for pricing this week.
“The tender period will be eight weeks, and pending no further complications, work is to commence on the ground in July.
This third phase of the Ennis Flood Relief Scheme had been delayed due to technical difficulties, but I am pleased that the project is finally moving on,” Minister Breen said.
“I understand the frustration of residence effected by flooding in this area of Ennis as they await the project to begin, a frustration that must be multiplied in recent days during the inclement weather, and I sincerely hope this is the beginning of the end of flooding issues for these people,” he added.
