Added December 22nd, 2015

 

Fine Gael TD for Limerick, Patrick O’Donovan has welcomed the news that €6.3million has been granted to Limerick for improvement and maintenance works on roads. “I am delighted at the news that €6.3million has been granted to Limerick for improvement and maintenance works on roads in the county. “Limerick City & County Council will be allocated €5.4million for road improvements and €840,000 for road maintenance. “This funding is part of an allocation of almost €160 million from Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII). Nationally, €139.7 million of this will go towards road improvement works, while €20.2 million will go towards essential road maintenance. “According to the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe, this funding announced today represents a base allocation for local authorities that will be supplemented during the year in respect of certain maintenance works, pavement works and safety schemes. “Fine Gael has a plan to keep the economic recovery going and ensure that we continue to have more resources to invest in better services and infrastructure like roads. The Government’s capital Investment Plan 2016-2022, allocates €6 billion for transport, which includes €4.4 billion, for the maintenance and renewal of the road network. “It is hugely important we invest in our road network, particularly as the economic recovery continues. In our export led economy, a well maintained road network is crucial to businesses across the country. It is also integral to helping us continue attracting investment in this country, as well as for tourism.”

Added December 9th, 2015

Fine Gael TD for Limerick Patrick O’Donovan has welcomed the confirmation that he has received this morning from the Minister for the Office of Public Works, Simon Harris TD that the OPW has informed Limerick City & County Council that it can proceed with the appointment of the contractor to the Foynes Flood Relief Scheme.

“I am delighted that Office of Public Works has now given approval for Limerick City and County Council to appoint a contractor to the project. This is evidence of the commitment that I received from the Minister previously of the OPW’s commitment to the flood relief scheme at Foynes and that the scheme is being progressed and is on track to be delivered.”

“I have worked very closely with Minister Simon Harris to ensure that the Foynes Flood Relief Scheme is prioritised. This has been looked for, for many years and the local community have been to the fore in pushing for the relief scheme, together with the Shannon Foynes Port Company who have already carried out some flood relief works in the area.”

“It is important to point out that as the Minister has stated, the funding is in place and the scheme is on track to be delivered within the original time frame.”
