Frank O’Rourke has made representations to the National Transport Authority to have bicycle lockers installed in Kilcock and Celbridge Rail Stations.
Frank commented, “I have asked the NTA and Irish Rail to install Bicycle Lockers at Hazelhatch and Kilcock Rail stations. We need to encourage people to use public transport and cycle to the rail station if possible. Irish Rail is now considering my proposal and I have been given an assurance that once funding is available and it is physically feasible, Bicycle Lockers will be provided at these two stations.”
Frank O’Rourke TD has welcomed the confirmation that a school bus will now be provided for children from Johnstownbridge attending Scoil Dara in Kilcock
“A School Bus Service is currently in place linking Enfield to Kilcock. I am delighted that this service will be extended to collect pupils in Johnstownbridge. Details are been finalised with Bus Éireann for the service to be operating in the coming days”
“I am delighted that I have now received confirmation from Minister Halligan that the extended bus service to Johnstownbridge will be in place in the coming days for the new school year. I first raised this matter with the Minister and his officials, when a number of parents contacted me with their concerns three years ago.”
“I have continued to press Minister Halligan over the last number of years on this issue and I must acknowledge his commitment and work to have this service provided. He was personally committed to providing this service and I appreciate his support.”
“Children attending Scoil Dara Kilcock in Kilcock from Johnstownbridge did not have access to a public school transport service. This will now be provided and it is long overdue. Great credit is due to the parents who have campaigned relentlessly to have this provided and I was delighted to have assisted.”
