Ceist:

187 Mr. Deenihan asked the Minister for the Environment the amount of money that has been set aside for directional signposting under the transport operational programme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1143/94]

Signposting may be EU co-financed where it is undertaken as part of a road improvement project assisted under the Operational Programme for Transport. The programme is also providing assistance to implement traffic management measures recommended by the final report of the Dublin Transportation Initiative and this may include improved signposting. The programme allocates funding at a global level only — national primary roads, non-national roads etc. — and not for individual activities such as signposting.
