Cllr. Kenneth Flood has welcomed the update on the much needed footpath to The Boyne Business Park but has stated that this project must progress as a matter of urgency due to the safety concerns attached.
Cllr Flood said “as far back as January I brought a motion to the Drogheda Municipal Council which was passed which said would provide pedestrian access through the Boyne Business Park. At last night’s meeting of the Municipal Council it was confirmed that the Council have prepared plans for a new link road between Newtown Link Road and to connect to existing road on third party lands through to Newtownstalaban at Boyne Business Park to provide safe, secure pedestrian and vehicular access.”
“The update includes costs for the new road which are estimated at €258,000 and there are ongoing meetings regarding the legal end including access and taking-in-charge through third party lands adjacent to the site. When the new road is available, use of the existing road should discontinue.”
Cllr Flood said the ‘overdue update that will be welcomed by the business and staff of The Boyne Business Park and by the public who need to access the services there.”
