Local Roads Investment Programme

10th May, 2011


I’m delighted with the news that that the minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport, Leo Varadkar, has allocated an additional €768,100 for the repair of roads throughout Co. Carlow. This is part of todays announcement that an additional €60m will be spent nationally on the Regional & Local Roads Investment Programme. The Programme is expected to create approx 1000 jobs.

This brings Carlow’s total allocation to over €2.6m for 2011 and is good news for the county.
