“The Department’s Climate Change Adaptation Works Scheme allocations will aid in the protection of local road infrastructure against the risks posed by climate change and severe weather, allowing for necessary drainage works and the repair of coastal walls while additional allocations will ensure the provision of cycle and speed limit signage where required.

“This continued high level of funding support for the maintenance of local road infrastructure is very welcome news and I am sure will be appreciated by local road users and rural communities in Cork East alike”, concluded Deputy Stanton.
