New €9m Garda station for Athlone goes to tender

Thu, Jun 22, 2017


The new €9m Garda station for Athlone has moved a step closer by going to tender.

The project, which was supposed to get underway more than a year ago, will combine the existing station with the former social welfare office adjacent to it. It is estimated that the works will take two years to complete and will be done on a phased basis so that the station can stay open.
