A total of €4,044,000 has been allocated for national primary pavement and minor works: €2.7 million for the New Ross ByPass residual network work, €1.08 million for Gorey to Enniscorthy residual network work, €44,000 for the provision of security on the Gorey Service Area of the N11 and €200,000 for Rosslare Harbour's new access road and new link to the N25. A total of €100,000 has awarded for local authority support (improvements) and €608,889 for ordinary maintenance on national primary routes, route maintenance and winter maintenance. National secondary routes were allocated only €41,511, with €15,900 for local authority support maintenance and winter maintenance, bringing to €676,300 the total allocated for maintenance. The figures were detailed in a newly-released Transport Infrastructure Ireland document which was published on Friday.
