MSD in Carlow

The additional jobs at MSD has led to calls for the "missing" footpath and cycle lanes to be finished near the pharmaceutical facility. 

Cllr Fergal Browne brought up the issue at this month's meeting of Carlow Municipal District and he welcomed the announcement by MSD of 170 new jobs at the pharma company's Carlow site. 

"The only drawback is there are two sections of around 200m of footpath and cycle lanes (near the facility) missing. It's an issue for people working out there," he said. 

Cllr Browne added: "Could we talk to MSD out there about completing those footpaths? It is dangerous. Hundreds are employed out there and we should look to get it done either this year or next year."
