Written Answers. - Clondalkin (Dublin) Road.

Liam Lawlor


186 Mr. Lawlor asked the Minister for the Environment whether South Dublin County Council has applied to his Department for funding towards the completion of Fonthill Road, Dublin 22; if so, the current status of the application; whether additional information is required; and if he will confirm his approval in principle for the inclusion of the funding in the 1997 Estimates in order to allow for the completion of this long-awaited road which is essential for the integration of the deprived area of north Clondalkin into the remainder of Lucan/Clondalkin. [18267/96]

The closing date for receipt of applications under the EU co-financed scheme of grants for specific improvement projects on non-national roads is 18 October 1996. While applications from South Dublin County Council have not been received to date, I understand that an application for funding will be submitted in respect of this project. I will give the matter sympathetic consideration on receipt of the necessary application and documentation but I do not envisage that allocations generally will be made until early 1997.
