New Moville footbridge will be finished by Christmas

Contractors begin work on ‘imperative’ health and safety project

Moville Footbridge Site

MOVILLE’S new state-of-art pedestrian only bridge will be built by Christmas, as contractors moved into the site on Tuesday.

The footbridge, which is situated at the bottom of the town, will cost the Council around €130,000 and will take four months to build after funding was officially approved by the Council earlier this year.

Local councillor Martin Farren, who first raised the issue more than a year ago to the Council, says the footbridge is essential from a health and safety point of view.

“The corner at the bottom of the town can be very dangerous at times given the amount of pedestrians using it and the volume of traffic,” said Cllr. Farren.

“It is essential that we have a footbridge in place for our pedestrians, whether they be going to Moville Health Centre or the Moville Community College, where 550 students attend each year.
