Written answers (Question to Education)

A building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is included in my Department's Construction Programme which is being delivered under the National Development Plan.

The project is currently out to tender, with tenders due back in mid December. Once the tenders are returned the Design Team will prepare and submit a tender report to my Department for assessment. 

Subject to no issues arising, during the tender process it is envisaged that works should commence on site in the 2nd quarter of 2020, with a contract duration of approximately 18 months.
