Motion brought by Cllr. Ó Cearúil.

The Greenway between Maynooth and Leixlip along the Royal Canal will progress shortly, the council has said it is finalising the procurement process for a main contractor for the construction of the greenway.

Fianna Fail Councillor Naoise Ó Cearúil had brought forward the motion and has asked the council to progress work with the NTA in upgrading the tow path along the Royal Canal from Maynooth to Leixlip.

Cllr. Ó Cearúil has asked the council to assess the safety of the junction between Main Street, Convent
Lane and the Dublin Road, in Maynooth, paying particular attention to the pedestrian crossing.

This location is within the area to be examined as part of the Maynooth Town Centre Renewal Plan.

This plan is to be progressed and developed in 2022 and will include an assessment of all junctions and pedestrian routes.

He asked the council confirm what progress has been made in addressing the dangerous
bends on the R148, Maynooth to Kilcock. 

The Council has said there is no funding identified or resources available to progress this project
at present.

The Fianna Fail has asked the council to confirm what progress has been made with providing a Community Centre for Maynooth.

The council has said Maynooth Community space has acted as a community centre in Maynooth for some time. Unfortunately this has been closed due to Covid restrictions.

The council are currently working with the facilities section to find a way we can safely reopen the
facility to the public.

A trial is currently being run in Newbridge Town Hall and we await the outcome of this. 

The council hope that Maynooth Community Space will reopen in the new year assuming a positive outcome from the trial and an easing of current restrictions.
