Funding Allocation Doubled For Upgrade Works On Non Public Roads In Rural Areas

The Department of Rural and Community Development has doubled its funding allocation for upgrade works on non-public roads in rural communities to €21 million.

The scheme is aimed at supporting the continued improvement of rural roads and lane ways that are not normally maintained by local authorities,  but which represent a vital piece of infrastructure for local residents.

Local Authorities in Wicklow and around the country are responsible for identifying and prioritising roads for improvement works under the scheme, in consultation with residents and landowners.

The works must be completed before the end of the year.
