Written answers (Question to Education)

The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved for delivery to Kildare and Wicklow Education & Training Board (KWETB).

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the tender report for this project was received in my Department today. 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 successful contractor will recommence work on site in Q3 2019 and the buildings will be available for occupation prior to September 2020.
