Milford Garda Station is being given the go-ahead for a major refurbishment, Government Minister Joe McHugh has announced.
The decision follows discussions between the Donegal TD and Minister of State Kevin Boxer Moran, the minister responsible for the Office of Public Works.
The works are expected to cost in the region of €250,000 with tender approval expected shortly.
“Works will begin at Milford Garda Station before the end of the year,” said Minister McHugh today.
“The OPW are completing the tendering process at the moment. The works are badly needed and I am delighted to have helped secure this progress.
“The works will involve additional space by extending and re-designing the existing station to include conference rooms, incident rooms, additional storage and an upgrade of the public office. There will also be extensive refurbishment of the cells.
“I know gardaí working out of the Milford station, which is the District headquarters, will welcome this upgrade as will members of the public. They will also help deliver an improved service, especially to victims of crime.”Tags:
