Installation of the long awaited new bus shelters in the Laytown and Bettystown area is to begin next week. 

The contract for completing these works was awarded yesterday to Davis Civil Engineering who will complete accommodation works on site at Laytown and Bettystown, and JC Decaeux will then then install the shelter shortly afterwards.

Welcoming the news, local Councillor, Sharon Tolan said: “This is great news for our commuters here in Laytown and Bettystown.  These new shelters were agreed last year, and it has been very frustrating waiting for the accommodation works to be agreed.

“I’m delighted that I’ve now gotten the green light that the contract has been awarded and works will commence next week. 

“I have used every opportunity possible to raise this issue, and highlight the discomfort of commuters and students using the bus service, and I am delighted that our Transportation Team have agreed that the first shelters on the list for the county should be installed in Laytown and Bettystown.  This will go some way to improve the lives of our local commuters.”

A spokesperson for Meath County Council said that JC Decaux have already made applications to the ESB for power to the sites and they hoped to have the work completed by the end of 2019.
