There is no funding available to carry out safety works on ditches in the Aughalough Road, Aughavas.

The news came following a query by Cllr Caillian Ellis.

Cllr Ellis had asked that the high ditches on the bends of local road L5510-0 be lowered in the interest of safety.

He was told that works of this nature are usually undertaken under a Low Cost Safety Grant Scheme or Specific Improvement Grants Scheme, but the work could be considered for inclusion when drawing up the 2016 programme.
