€1.7 million in funding has been allocated for works on Kerry roads.
It is part of a national package of funding worth 10 million euro for schemes across the country announced by Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe.
The announcement has been welcomed by Minister of State, Jimmy Deenihan and Deputies Brendan Griffin and Arthur Spring.
Four Kerry road projects are included in this announcement, which accounts for a third of the projects to receive Government support in this tranche of funding.
Two projects on the N70 in south Kerry are set to benefit.
Half a million euro is earmarked for the Killorglin South Pavement Works Extension programme and 300,000 euro is being given for pavement works in Sneem East.
Half a million euro is being allocated for pavement renewal at Corrmaree Bridge on the N22.
In North Kerry, 400,000 euro will be made available for the N69 at Tarbert towards the county bounds for pavement strengthening.
Work on the schemes will begin this year.
