Government Announces €10m for Critical National Road Upgrades
Half of the fund will be allocated to road projects in Co. Cork, including the N20 Cork to Limerick national route.
The N20 will receive a pavement overlay and other improvements. The N22 Cork-Kerry road will also receive a surface upgrade, while in Cork City, the N27 South Link road will also be upgraded.
The €10m represents the first tranche of the government's €30m fund for critical improvements. The fund is in addition to the €360m allocation to Transport Infrastructure Ireland for national roads in 2015.
