The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of Clare County 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.

An application has been received for a safety improvement scheme in respect of Cree Bridge, Cree, County Clare as part of Clare County Council's 2020 funding submission under the Safety Improvement Grant Programme.

Grant allocations under the Safety Improvement Grant Programme will be announced in early (i.e. January or February) 2020.
