TALKS between the OPW and Wills Bros Ltd over the Bandon Flood Relief Scheme concluded positively last night but a deal has not yet been signed between the two parties.
Cork South West TD Jim Daly confirmed the news at lunchtime today and it is hoped that work on the town’s flood relief scheme is back on track.
‘Minister Canney is optimistic now that the works will get back on track but he will not make a public statement until the agreement is formal,’ said Deputy Daly.
Works on the €11m flood relief scheme stalled nearly three weeks ago over contractual issues between Wills Bros Ltd and the OPW and they had been in intense negotiations since to resolve these matters.
It is expected that works will resume as scheduled once the agreement is signed, which is expected later today or early tomorrow morning.
