Claremorris Fine Gael councillor Tom Connolly has welcomed the signing of the contact for upgrading the Kilcolman/Facefield group water scheme.
The contract has been awarded to Conwell Construction limited.
“This is very good news for the 130 plus users of the scheme,” Cllr Connolly said. “The scheme was re tendered and came in a lower price that the first tender in 2008.”
Work on the scheme is due to commence in the next two weeks and is scheduled for completion by the middle of 2011.
