County Tipperary To Receive €1.757M In Funding For Regional & Local Roads

159
County Tipperary is to receive €1.757M of a total national allocation of €30M announced today  by Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan.  The additional  funding is for regional and local roads across Ireland today. This is to deal specifically with the impact of climate change, which has contributed to a deterioration in the surface quality of certain parts of the network over the winter months. 
Minister Ryan says following persistent rainfall over winter and spring this emergency investment will assist in addressing the worst impacted areas of the road network.

For equity, additional funding is being distributed among local authorities based on road lengths per region. The Dublin local authorities self-fund road maintenance and improvement works from the receipt of local property taxes, and so have not been allocated funding under this scheme. Cork received the largest allocation of €3.7M.

Today’s announcement has been welcomed by Tipperary TD Jackie Cahill.
