North Tipperary to Receive Funding for Roads Upgrade

North Tipperary to Receive Funding for Roads Upgrade

The Department of Transport has made an allocation of €978,359 for maintaining and repairing roads in North Tipperary. This scheme, which is being rolled out nationally, will see direct community input into necessary road maintenance projects through the provision of labour, machinery or additional funding. 

According to Fine Gael TD Noel Coonan “This initiative will improve 36 projects in North Tipperary, which covers 20,018 kilometres."  Some of the regional and local road projects to benefit in North Tipperary include Garrane Toomevara, Clover Two-Mile-Borris, Castlefogarty Ballycahill and Shevry Upperchurch.

Deputy Coonan continued: “Given the difficult economic climate, local authorities have a limited budget within which to repair and maintain roads across Tipperary. The priority of a local authority’s repair programme tends to be on maintaining the main roads in the county. The Community Involvement Scheme gives the power to local communities in Tipperary to identify lesser trafficked roads that need to be repaired or maintained which would not usually be considered for funding.
