An unspecified group of contractors working on a road located in Kildare have been criticised for allegedly creating a 'mess.'

Fine Gael councillor Brendan Weld told his colleagues and representatives Kildare County Council (KCC) at the latest Clane-Maynooth Municipal District (MD) meeting, which was held on Friday, September 2, that he has received a number of complaints from residents regarding the alleged mess.

He said: "It (The site) is worse than before."

Cllr Weld also asked KCC if there were any penalties that could be imposed on the contractors — "And if not, then they shouldn't be contracted again," he added.
