Footpath & Road Improvement Programme 2020 – Progress Report

In March, local Councillors approved the Dublin Central Footpath and Roads Maintenance Programme for 2020. This month, I secured a progress report on the works undertaken to date, as a result of direct funding of €885,000 from Fine Gael in Government, as part of the July Stimulus Plan. Substantial progress can be reported on the Roads improvement programme for this year and I have detailed what streets have been completed and what remains to be re-surfaced.
