KCC Reiterates Prohibitive Cost Of Submerging Cables In Two Towns.

: 02/22/2018 - 18:17

Kildare County Council has reiterated that the cost of under-grounding of overhead cables in two Kildare towns would be "prohibitive" and "beyond" its resources

In November, KCC, in response to a motion on the cost of  submerging the cables in Newbridge and Kildare, indicated it was not feasible.

A similar project in Celbridge is understood to be costed at €1.5 million; however, this scheme includes some works on the street-scape.

It has restated that position at the February meeting of the Kildare/Newbridge Municipal District.
