The project to which the Deputy refers is currently at tender stage. The closing date for tenders has now passed and six tenders have been returned. The Department expects that the Tender Report will be submitted by the Design Team in the coming weeks.

Subject to no issues arising, it is anticipated that construction will commence in the 1st quarter of 2020 and the project is expected to take approximately 20 months to complete.
