Cavan/Monaghan Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith has welcomed the allocation of €17.5 Million for Cavan County Council and €16.2 Million for the Non National Roads Network Programme for 2023. This substantial allocation of government funding has been confirmed by my Party colleague, Minister of State Jack Chambers TD.
“This funding will enable much needed improvement works to be carried out throughout all of both counties and there are some specific grant allocations including bridge repairs and safety works. There is also a specific allocation of €400,000 towards the Assan Bridge and Road realignment. Another welcome allocation is funding of €250,000 on the R118 Rathkenny Cavan Cootehill Road which is part of the East-West route. Major investment is needed in our road network in both Cavan and Monaghan as the condition of many roads in both counties had deteriorated. This year’s allocation plus the substantial Road Works Programme undertaken in 2022 will make a real difference in the quality and condition of roads for many communities”, stated Deputy Brendan Smith.
