FUNDING has been approved for works on the N22 Ballyvourney to Macroom road and a bypass of Adare.

This comes as part of a €6bn investment in the road network announced by the Government today in its €42bn capital investment plan for the country.

Meanwhile, €7.5 million has been allocated to Tralee IT to permit the construction of a €15 million physical education facility with a particular focus on being the national headquarters for CARA – National Centre for Adapted Physical Activity and the headquarters for UNESCO Chair in Inclusive Physical Education, Sport, Fitness and Recreation. The facility will also host the activities of the Institute’s Health and Leisure programmes, the Kerry GAA sports centre of excellence and Comhaltas Ceoltóiri Eireann.

Funding has been approved for bypass work on the N22 Ballyvourney to Macroom road, while a bypass of Adare will get the go-ahead subject to planning.

Nationally the roads programme will total €6bn over seven years, €4.4bn of this programme will be devoted to essential maintenance and strengthening works on the network and restoring roads to the quality levels required.

A further €600m relates to on-going development of our PPP roads pipeline. €860m will be targeted at progressing new priority roads projects.

The two sections of road have been earmarked as key priorities in the roads programme which will support economic growth.
