Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy is aware, this project has been devolved to Kildare and Wicklow Education & Training Board (KWETB) for delivery.

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the tender report for this project was received in my Department yesterday. A review of the report is currently underway and is expected to be completed very shortly. Therefore, the Letter of Intent has not issued yet. It is expected that the project will commence construction in November this year so that it will be completed before September 2021.
