Laois TD and Fine Gael Chairman Charlie Flanagan has said that he expects the new circular walkway at Emo Court to open in time for the Spring.
Deputy Flanagan initially requested the OPW and Minister Brian Hayes to explore the possibility of constructing a walkway around the lake as an added tourism attraction for visitors to Emo Court.
“Following the completion of engineering and landscape surveys by the OPW I was informed that contracts were issued following a tender process. The construction works on the circular walkway are now well underway. The project involves nearly 800 metres of pathway and two small bridges around the lake,” he said.
