As I stated in response to a similar Parliamentary Question on 8 September last, it is expected that, subject to approval, tender documentation will issue in October 2020, with a Contract being awarded following tender receipt and evaluation.  Construction work will take approx. 18 months to complete.  The impact of the new Garda operational model is a matter for An Garda Síochána and the Department of Justice and Equality.
