As the Deputy is aware, the improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads 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 the Council's own resources supplemented by Exchequer road grants, where applicable. The initial selection and prioritisation of works to be funded is also a matter for the local authority.

Further to Parliamentary Question No. 252 of 29 September 2020, it remains the case that one local authority, Mayo County Council, has drawn down €11,640 to date.
