A €13.8 million roads programme for the Tipp-Cahir-Cashel Municipal District has been approved by local councillors.

It’s a funding increase for the three-year programme, with the district’s most perilous routes already agreed upon during meetings with council engineers.

Cathaoirleach of the Municipal District, Cllr Mary Hanna Hourigan says there will be some flexibility over the next three years to prioritise roads which require more urgent attention.

She’s confident that an even spread of works will be seen across the area.

“It’s a very comprehensive list and it’s a three-year roads programme, so the roads that are probably in most need to be done immediately will take priority.

“We have a budget of about €4.6 million plus for the next three years, so the same budget nearly for every year and then it’s being evenly divided amongst Cahir, amongst Cashel and Tipperary.”
