Liberty Square Car Park, Closed Until Friday Feb.25th.

Liberty Square (Ulster Bank) Carpark, Thurles Closes.

Tipperary County Council have announced that planned works to the Liberty Square (Ulster Bank) carpark in Thurles, will commence on tomorrow Monday 21st February 2022.

The carpark will remain closed from tomorrow, Monday February 21st until Saturday 26th February.
According to Mr Thomas Duffy, (Executive District Engineer), once the work is completed, there will be approximately 54 parking spaces available in the car park, including spaces for ‘Age Friendly’ parking andAutism Friendly’ spaces.

Thurles Municipal District officials wishes to acknowledge the disruption these works will cause to businesses in the town. However, in order to minimise disruption, commencement of this work was chosen to coincide with what is a nearby school’s mid-term break.

This represents a substantial investment by tax payers, towards local infrastructure, thus allowing Tipperary Co. Council to glean even more money to waste.

Note above, the car parked in 10 centimetres of stagnant water, with the surrounding images, further evidence of Thurles Municipal District Council’s inability to administrate the clearing of drains, identified and reported to the afore mentioned Mr Thomas Duffy, (Executive District Engineer) on July 26th 2021.

But then car parks generate more Council revenue, than pedestrians, businesses and private homes.

In a communication from Ms Sharan Scully District Administrator stating that, quote : – “Mr Tomas Duffy, District Engineer inspected the location on Kickham Street, outside your property on the 8th February.
Mr Duffy reported that the water ponding is directly due to reinstatement works associated with water main works, carried out by Irish Water recently. 
The complaint was referred to Irish Water in order to rectify this matter. Mr Duffy then followed up the report directly with the Water Services in Tipperary County Council and impressed on them the urgency to have this work rectified”.

Regrettably, no one in Irish Water paid any attention to Mr Duffy and repairs have failed to materialise, with water flowing from Willowmere Drive, west into Kickham Street, using the road surface as a drain.

See picture section, featured above at centre bottom, shows Irish Water’s handiwork on Kickham Street, with one of their manholes loose and sinking into the road surface.
