While the €1.427m extra funding is to be directed primary at road surface restoration works, Minister of State Tom Hayes said the Council can also make an application to the Department of Transport for some of the funds to be spent on road safety schemes that need to be progressed urgently.

Minister Hayes welcomed the extra funding and pointed out it will have to be spent by the Co. Council this year.
