Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

The total non-national road grant allocation, which I announced yesterday for Meath County Council, in 2004 is €23,205,562, representing an increase of 10% over the 2003 allocation.

I am pleased to say that included in this allocation is a grant of €300,000, under the EU co-financed specific improvement grants scheme, for the R153 Navan to Balrath — Kentstown scheme.
