Tidy Towns

Sallins Tidy Towns continue to do great work throughout the year and have the village in top condition for the judging this Summer. Unfortunately some of their good work was undone recently when a number of newly planted trees were removed from near the substation and the Clane end of the village. If anyone has any information relating to this please contact a member of the local committee or Naas Garda station.

Rail Users

Works are nearly completed at Sallins railway station to install the new disability access bridge which have been going on since last winter. However the shelters were removed during the works and it is not clear what form of new shelters will be provided. James Lawless, spokesperson for NASRUG has raised the issue with Irish Rail and asked them to ensure that adequate shelter facilities are restored once the works are completed.
