REPLY

The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of each local authority, in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from local authorities own resources supplemented by State road grants.  The initial selection and prioritisation of works to be funded is also a matter for the local authority.

As the Sallins Bypass and Osberstown Interchange projects have still to be submitted to and considered by An Bord Pleanála,  there has been no discussion of funding options for the construction of these projects with Kildare County Council.
