Major works on water mains in Monaghan town to begin in 2017

Major works on the water mains in Monaghan town will commence in 2017.

The replacement of water mains in the town will get underway at the start of the New Year, a plan that has been in the pipeline for a number of years.

The works were approved in 2015 and as a result, many pavements and areas in Monaghan have not undergone any recent renovation works.

Local Fine Gael Councillor David Maxwell says that it is not clear just how much disruption the move will cause.
