Arising from the Government decision of Tuesday 12th February 2019 in relation to capita l reallocations related to the cost overrun on the National Childrens hospital, the Office of Public Works is reviewing the most appropriate means of achieving the required capital savings of €3 million in the flood risk management area. Expenditure on any particular project or programme in any year is dependent on many variables related to the progress of the project and programme. The OPW can state that all capital projects committed to will be delivered.
