Progress is now being made for tenders to go ahead for a new Co Kildare school.
Kildare North Labour General Election Candidate Emmet Stagg is welcoming confirmation from the Minister for Education that authorisation for the commencement of the pre-qualification process for contractors for the new Scoil Phádraig NS, Clane, has issued to the Board of Management of the School.
The pre-qualification process will, stated Mr. Stagg, take between eight and 12 weeks to complete and will see a short list of contractors drawn up for the actual tender stage. Once the pre-qualification process is completed the project will then go to tender stage where a successful contractor will be chosen to build the new school.
He pointed out that planning permission for the new 24 classroom school was granted on July 4, 2016, and he welcomed the fact that the project was now advancing through the tendering process.
