Local Fianna Fail TD, Frank O’Rourke, has welcomed the decision by Kildare County Council to put forward a new site, located close to the town centre, for the Park & Ride Facility in Kilcock.
“Over the last year, I have worked with all stakeholders including Kilcock businesses, Bus Eireann, McGarrell Reilly and the Council, to have a Park & Ride Facility provided for Kilcock for bus commuters.”
“The new site, which is adjacent to Lidl on the Maynooth road, will also be available for rail commuters, and will ensure that the town centre is not cluttered with extra traffic, but close enough to the centre to ensure that footfall is enhanced for businesses in Kilcock.”
“We have encountered a number of obstacles in securing a suitable site along the way, but I am confident that this decision is a major step forward, and I know that all parties will now work to ensure that we complete the public consultation process and get to construction as soon as possible so the Park & Ride Facility is in place for the benefit of Kilcock. I want to thank all those that worked so positively with me on this important project for Kilcock”
“We continue to make progress on improving the public transport services for Kilcock commuters, with extra services for Route 115 and a fairer rail fare structure for Kilcock which is now included in the short hop zone,” concluded Deputy O’Rourke.
