Engineer to work on safety measures at Saunder’s Bridge

A consulting engineer is to be asked to work on the safety measures planned for Saunders Bridge, Mullingar, Cllr Aoife Davitt was told at last week’s meeting of the Mullingar Kinnegad Municipal District (MKMD).

Cllr Davitt, who had asked for an update, was informed that funding has been received for detailed design under Specific Improvement Scheme.

The official written response to her query stated that the council’s transportation department has advertised to procure the services of a consulting engineer to progress this scheme through the detailed design and the tender documentation stages in 2020 and also to secure the relevant third party legal agreements, which are required with Irish Rail and Waterways Ireland.

“Funding for the construction stage will then be sought,” the reply concluded.
