Fine Gael Senator for Kerry, Paul Coghlan, has welcomed the announcement today (Wednesday 3rd December) by the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe TD, that funding has been allocated for improvements to the N86 Tralee to Dingle road. This is part of a €60 million national funding package for minor works announced by Minister Donohoe.
“I’m delighted that funding has been approved for important works on roads in Kerry. This should result in shorter journey times on safer roads.
“Works will commence in 2015 on the N86 from Lispole Village to Ballynasare Lower and from Mountover to Camp. This is a 5.1km stretch and the money that has been allocated will be used to improve safety for all road users.
“These works will improve driving conditions for motorists, accessibility for local communities and boost economic activity.”
