Work is well underway at Glenamaddy National School on a raft of safety measures which will improve safety outside the school.
The work is being carried out under a Community Involvement Scheme which Cllr. Peter Keaveney applied for on behalf of the pupils, staff and parents of the school.
Cllr. Keaveney liased with the GRETB (Galway & Roscommon Education & Training Board) on behalf of the National School to get the ground necessary to carry out the work at the old technical school.
Cllr. Keaveney has thanked the GRETB for their support and for giving the ground to carry out the work. These works are also being completed as part of a Clár Scheme.
Cllr. Keaveney detailed the ongoing work. “The works include setting back of the wall at the old tech next door to the national school, the laying of a new foot path and tarmacadam. A new safety crossing will be installed from Dudley Heights to the National School.
“The set down area in front of the school will be tarmacadamed and a new footpath laid. The ESB wires on the Kilkerrin Road will be put under ground. Eleven new LED lights will replace the existing lights. The work being carried out will greatly improve safety at the school and will serve to enhance the Kilkerrin Road,” he said.
