South Tipperary T.D. Tom Hayes has welcomed the announcement by the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport that €85,000 is being allocated to local authorities in South Tipperary for 3 substantial construction projects. The funding comes as part of the Smarter Travel Initiative.
“The €85,000 announced will cover 3 projects in Carrick-on-Suir and Clonmel. In Carrick we’ll see the installation of 48 bike racks in various locations around the town, as well as a bus shelter on the Pill Road used in particular by commuting students to Waterford IT. There will also be the creation of a pedestrian priority corridor on New Lane.” commented Deputy Hayes.
He continued, “In Clonmel construction will begin on a zebra crossing facility at the Sisters of Charity Primary School, incorporating signage, markings, and a disabled parking bay for the school and the adjacent medical centre.”
