Deputy John Deasy asked the Minister for Education and Skills when he expects his Department's Carrickphierish Campus joint venture with Waterford City Council to finally start construction; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
Reply from Minister Ruairí Quinn: I am pleased to inform the Deputy that following the recent completion of the pre-qualification of contractors, the project has been authorisation to proceed to tender. It is anticipated, once the tender period is complete, that a contractor will be appointed and construction will commence in the final quarter of this year.
