THE Abbey Court estate in Portlaoise will soon be completed, with the county council giving a committment to have all works finished off early in 2013.
In a letter received by Portlaoise Town Council from Carmel McNicholl of the planning and economic development department, it was confirmed that works were due to commence in the estate on December 3. The works are being carried out by a contractor appointed by the bond company, but will be supervised by Laois County Council technical staff. It is expected that the works will take approximately six weeks.
“I’m pleased at long last,” said Cllr Jerry Lodge. “These things are dragged out by all parties involved.”
