Kerbing will be replaced in Portlaoise’s Glenbrook estate by October, to prevent further damage to cars.
The commitment was given at Laois County Hall, in response to a motion proposed by Cllr Mary Sweeney.
“It beggars belief that (the developer) moved out without completing the estate, it’s unbelievable, it’s in a dreadful condition,” she said.
She said there’s been a huge amount of damage caused to car tyres from the curbing in the estate.
Supporting the motion, Cllr Caroline Dwane Stanley said that the curbing had been left in a dreadful state, as were the gullies.
Cllr John Joe Fennelly said it was terrible to see such a lovely estate left in such awful conditions.
Director of services, Kieran Kehoe said that the lowest tender for the works had pulled out, which had delayed the process by a few weeks.
