Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 136 to 138, inclusive, together.

The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads (RLR) is the statutory responsibility of each local authority, in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from local authorities' own resources supplemented by State road grants, where applicable. In the case of the four Dublin Councils, since the revision of the arrangements for the retention of Local Property Tax in 2015 these Councils are required to largely self-fund their road programmes.

As the statutory road authority for their area, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is responsible for the implementation of this project. My Department is not funding any element of this scheme under the Regional and Local Road Grant Programme and I have no function in relation to the tender and contract award process.

In view of the above I would suggest that contact is made with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council directly for updates on this project.
