The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of the relevant local authority in accordance with the provisions of section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from council's own resources supplemented by State road grants, where applicable. In this context the consideration of transport options for access to Cobh and Great Island and the proposed appointment of consultants, is a matter for Cork County Council.

As regards the classification of the R624, the position remains that no decision has been taken to reclassify the route as a national road and that further consideration may be given to the issue as part of a future general review of road classifications.

An application for grant funding was submitted by the Council under the Bridge Rehabilitation Grant Programme for works on the Belvelly Bridge and €35,301 has been allocated for this in this year's grants.
