Green light for Garda station redevelopment

Thu, Apr 26, 2018

Minister Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran joined Minister for Justice and Equality Charlie Flanagan last Thursday morning to announce details of the €8.3m restoration and refurbishment of Athlone Garda Station.

The works will be undertaken in two main phases. Phase one of the work will take place at the former Social Protection building, while phase two of the work will focus the existing Garda Station building. A final element will consist of the linking of both buildings and the removal of temporary installations in the former Social Protection building.

Minister Moran said: “This is a much needed project for the town and will involve the complete restoration and refurbishment of the existing Garda Station and the former Social Protection building next door. Both of these OPW buildings date from the 1930s and 1940s respectively. A new link building between these buildings will provide a new entrance that is accessible to all and incorporates new facilities for the Gardai.”
