Fine Gael TD for Galway West & Mayo South

€21.57 million investment in Galway’s Regional and Local Roads for 2017

€21.57 million has been allocated for Galway’s Regional and Local Roads. The investment represents an increase of over three quarters of a million euro on the 2016 figure and includes €19.57 million for Galway County Council and almost €2 million for Galway City Council.

Connectivity is vital for communities and is an important feature of the recently-launched Rural Action Plan. The investment of €21.57 million in Galway’s Regional and Local Roads will help drive improvements to Galway’s road network across the City and County.

The allocation for the County will fund maintenance, including re-surfacing and restoration, of local and regional roads. Over €400,000 will fund bridge rehabilitation work at nine locations across the County and over €200,000 will be directed towards important safety works at seven locations including Lisheenkyle-Oranmore and Clifden.

With investment of almost €2 million for the City projects to benefit include over €100,000 for works on the City’s main bridges and a €140,000 investment in crucial safety works at Maunsell’s Road.

The continuation of the flexible approach to the funding is very welcome. Over the last number of years successive the amount of discretionary funding for City and County Councils has been increased meaning funding can be guided by the local knowledge of the local authorities.

The investment is good for business and tourism but most of all for the communities who rely on the road network daily.
