Written answers (Question to Public)

The Commissioners of Public Works, earlier this year, identified the requirement for Roof replacement works to be carried out at Coolock Garda Station covering an area of 213 m2. Works commenced on Tuesday 11th June and it is envisaged that these works will take 3 weeks to complete (weather permitting).

The Commissioners of Public Works have in recent times carried out a full refurbishment of the cell block at this Station under the capital works programme which was completed in May 2012.

The Commissioners of Public Works have also carried out work at the request of An Garda Síochana capturing a range of maintenance and upgrading works. Of note was the refurbishment work carried out to the Public Office, which was completed in mid November 2012.
