Offaly County Council successful in Funding for Flood Relief Work Bog Road Portarlington

Offaly County Council have successfully secured €132,795 in funding for flood remediation work on the Bog Road Portarlington.

The Bog Road is a critical route for students accessing Coláiste Íosagáin, a secondary school of over 1000 students.  However it has regularly been rendered impassable in recent times due to flooding.

Mark Mahon, Area Engineer for Edenderry Municipal District commented "this funding will enable clearing of drains and the Blackstick Stream, new culverts with enhanced capacity and raising of a section of the Bog Road".  Funding was secured under the OPW Minor Work Flood Mitigation Scheme.  The work will commence in the Summer to minimise disruption to the school community
