Written answers (Question to Education)

The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved to Kildare and Wicklow Education & Training Board.

We understand from KWETB that tenders have been invited from the shortlisted contractors and the closing date for receipt of same has been extended to 21st June 2019.  It is expected that a Tender Report will be issued to the Department shortly thereafter. 

A Letter of Intent will issue when the Department has approved the Tender Report.  The project will then proceed to construction.
