Kildare Co Coucil said it has undertaken an Accessibility Survey of Maynooth town centre to help pedestrians with mobility issues.
The Council has currently engaged a consultant to drawn up a design specification for an accessible friendly street scape.
Once this is completed, Council workers will complete a section of the pavement in Maynooth using this specification.
A Council spokesperson said: "We cannot cost any works until this design specification has been completed.
"It is at present about 95% complete.
"A draft specification was completed and following a public consultation has gone back to the consultant to make amendments."
The issue was raised at a recent Municipal District meeting.
It also emerged that an Age Friendly Walkability audit in Leixlip will be scheduled for late Spring/early Summer.
