Eleven schools across Caerphilly County Borough have had asbestos removed.
Caerphilly County Borough Council is part-way through a two-year asbestos removal project for the county’s schools following a budget allocation of £800,000.
Works are ongoing to see the removal of amosite asbestos products from school buildings following a decision taken by cabinet in July 2014.
To date, removal projects have been completed at Bedwas Junior School, Cefn Fforest Primary, Fleur de Lys Primary, Fochriw Primary, Hendre Infants, Hendredenny Primary, St Cenydd School, St Martin’s School, Ystrad Mynach Primary, Llancaeach Juniors and Deri Primary.
The project is on target to complete the removal programme across all 37 schools by December 2016.
