Written answers (Question to Transport)

The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of the relevant local authority in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from the Council's own resources supplemented by State road grants. The initial selection and prioritisation of works to be funded is a matter for the Council.

All available grant funding for 2019 has been allocated.

If you want further details on the prioritisation of projects on roads within the county, Kildare County Council should be able to advise you.
