I propose to take Questions Nos. 183 to 185, inclusive, together.
The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of the relevant County or City Council, 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 also a matter for the Council.
Local authorities were notified of their grant allocations in January. Details of the grant allocations, including an allocation in relation to the R336 Connemara Access Road, are in the Regional and Local Road Grant Allocation booklet which is available in the Oireachtas library. It is a matter for each local authority to assess its priorities and draw up a roadworks programme for the year based on the State grant funding and own resources available to it.
