€14.5m for regional and local roads across Co Wicklow

Local Fianna Fáil Senator Pat Casey, has welcomed €14.5 million in funding for improving and maintaining Co Wicklow roads.

This is part of a significant investment package of €658m nationwide aimed at restoring the network which is essential for maintaining social and economic connectivity, linking people and places across the country. Central to this is the need to ensure that the journeys that people take are as predictable and as safe as possible.

Senator Casey said, “This investment will allow us to repair, strengthen and maintain our roads across the region, ensuring they are fit for purpose. We are dedicating resources towards initiatives such as road repair, bridge rehabilitation, road safety measures, community engagement, drainage improvements, and climate change adaptation.

“Maintaining and improving our road network is crucial to sustaining and developing our local economies across rural Ireland. These roads are imperative for children getting to school and people getting to work safely.”

Senator Casey emphasised the importance of this investment for rural regeneration and concluded by saying that a key priority for Fianna Fáil in Government continues to be the protection and renewal of the existing regional and local road network.
