Kilkenny gets €1.5m for local road and bridge works

The Government today announced Kilkenny will get just under €1.5 million funding for road and bridge safety works.

The funding was welcomed by Kilkenny TD John Paul Phelan. Deputy Phelan said: “The investment announced this morning includes €567,000 for climate change adaptation and resilience works and €247,000 for bridge rehabilitation work on regional and local roads. This morning’s investments also include €397,400 for safety improvement works and €250,000 for improvements along the busy Castlecomer Road, a former national road.

“With even more traffic on our roads again, it is critical that surfaces are kept in good repair and that motorists, pedestrians and all road users feel safe. While I’d like to see more funding made available, this is a welcome boost,” Deputy Phelan said.
