Local Cllr William Carey has welcomed a statement from SDCC that they have received a consultant’s report outlining the scopes of work to be carried out on the Camac river boardwalk adjacent to Clondalkin offices. Cllr Carey stated that SDCC are now in the process of issuing tenders to contractors and work expected to begin by the end of September. The Clondalkin Cllr stated that the boardwalk and seating area is a relaxing meeting spot for many local people who walk from the Mill shopping centre up to the village centre.
Its loss of use and closure over the past 10 months has been a source of annoyance for many people. The erection of safety barriers has left the area looking run down with litter and leaves being trapped within the cordoned off space. Cllr Carey said that the return of this relaxing amenity will be greatly welcomed by the people of Clondalkin.
