€1.8 million Roads Funding Includes Funding for Bansha and Golden as Part of Jobs Initiative – Hayes

South Tipperary T.D. Tom Hayes has welcomed the additional €1.8 million to be spent on South Tipperary Roads in 2011 as part of the Jobs Initiative launched this week, which includes €138,000 for Golden village and €43,500 for Grallagh, near Bansha.

“As part of this week’s Jobs Initiative, County Councils across the country are being provided with an additional €60 million for the Regional and Local Roads Investment Programme. This funding is being provided under the Restoration Improvement Programme,” Tom Hayes T.D. said today.

“Under this Programme, South Tipperary County Council submitted a three year programme (for the period 2011 – 2013) identifying the roads most in need of improvement in this area. The projects in Golden and Grallagh were prioritised by South Tipperary County Council for restoration and will be completed this year. The additional funding being provided under the Initiative will enable local authorities to bring forward works on roads which were not scheduled to take place until 2012.

“I have highlighted for some months now the necessity of undertaking emergency roadworks to repair the damage done by the last 18 months of extreme weather conditions and I am very glad that the Fine Gael-Labour Jobs Initiative means that the works prioritised by South Tipperary County Council can be completed in coming months,” Tom Hayes continued.

“In the region of 1,000 jobs will be created through this combined investment across the country and I think we are starting on the road to economic recovery with the Jobs Initiative,” Tom Hayes concluded.
