Deputy John Deasy has been informed by the National Transport Authority that Kilmacthomas and Tramore are to be included in a new priority bus shelter investment programme.
The Waterford Fine Gael TD made representations to the NTA asking that shelters be provided at the end of Main Street in Kilmac’ — an issue he’s been working on with local councillor Liam Brazil (left) — and also Crobally Upper, Tramore, another area he was contacted about.
Chief Executive of the NTA, Gerry Murphy, has written to Deputy Deasy to confirm that both locations will be ‘covered’ as part of a new investment roll-out.
In his letter of August 5th, Mr Murphy said: “The Authority last week approved a €0.8 million bus shelter programme in respect of Bus Éireann, which will provide for the installation of 40 shelters across the State. You will be pleased to know that the programme includes the provision of shelters at Tramore (Terminus and Crobally Upper) and Kilmacthomas”.
Both bus shelters were erected in late October and have been positively received.
