Revealed: Where the €6m allocated for Kilkenny road projects will be spent

Are these roads improvement and maintenance works near you?

Kilkenny has received almost €6m in the 2018 National Roads Allocation from Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII).

One of the highest allocations is for pavement improvement works on the N25 Graiguenakill to Gaulstow road which was given €2m by TII.

The N76 Callan Road Realignment (Tennypark) has been given €450,000 for 2018.

The funds to Kilkenny County Council also include local authority support for winter maintenance which is a sum of €90,000.

Labour Councillor Maurice Shortall welcomed the "continuous improvements in the National Secondary Road network across North-East Kilkenny".

He said: "In the 2018 National Roads Allocations by TII the N78 Coolbaun to Crettyard Pavement Works has been allocated  €2,020,000 while the N77 Ballyragget Village to Ballynaslee Road Improvement has benefitted to the tune of €110k for Tender Design Works.

"The tender documents are almost finalised for the N78," added Cllr Shortall.
