€6 million in funding confirmed for Clare’s national roads and greenways

–                  Part of €440m national investment

–                  Issued via Transport Infrastructure Ireland


Clare Fianna Fáil TD Cathal Crowe has welcomed the allocation of €6,035,946 in funding for Clare’s national roads and greenways.

The funds, which will be issued to local authorities through Transport Infrastructure Ireland, form part of an overall €440 million investment nationally.

“This is hugely welcome news for Co. Clare today,” said Deputy Crowe.

“To have an investment of this size in our national roads and greenway infrastructure is fantastic.

“It will help ensure that our roads are safe, reliable and accessible for everyone who uses them.

“The funding is broken down into categories, with €3.2m ringfenced for capital investment works. Included in this is €500,000 for Shannon Airport Access on the N19 and €1.1m for a Doonbeg pavement as part of a suite of works on the N67.

“€2.2m has been earmarked for our county’s fabulous greenways and the final €571,946 is for maintenance on the current road network.

“This announcement follows that of last week, which saw €43.5m announcement for our county’s local and regional roads, meaning an investment in the region of €50m on Clare’s roads network this year.

“I very much welcome this news and look forward to seeing the highlighted projects come to fruition.

“This is a huge investment and I hope to see it wisely spent over the coming months.”
