Local TD, Alan Farrell (FG), has said that works on Lusk Community College are on-track to finally start this summer.
Farrell told the County Leader, “Many parents, teachers, and members of the local community in Lusk have understandably been frustrated over the delays which have hindered the completion of the school building project in the past.”
“Following the approval for phase two of the development of Lusk Community College last October, we were informed that the process would take between three and six months to complete. Now, I have been informed by the Department of Education and Skills that the Design Team for the project are currently finalising the shortlist of contractors who will be invited to tender for the project.”
“Though there have been delays in the past, I am pleased that we are finally making progress on delivering phase two of Lusk Community College. The completion of the second phase of the school building is vital in terms of ensuring all students and teachers have the resources and space they require, and that adequate capacity is provided to cater for the needs of the local community now, and in the coming years.”
“With the contractors who will be invited to tender now being shortlisted, and should no further issues arise, construction on phase two of Lusk Community College is on-track to begin this coming summer. Overall, the development of the second phase of the school should be completed within 18 months,” he concluded
