« BackKerry TD says Killarney to Farranfore should have been included in capital plan

Tom Fleming TD
A Kerry TD says the omission of the N22 road from Killarney to Farranfore in the Government’s Capital Plan is a severe blow for the county.

Independent TD Tom Fleming says the decision is a massive setback to the infrastructural needs of Kerry saying the N22 is a transport hub.

Preliminary preparations for the plan and design of the new road has been ongoing for the past 15 years at a cost of 1.5 million euro spent by Kerry County Council and the National Roads Authority.

Deputy Fleming raised the issue with the Transport Minister at a meeting of the Dail Committee of Transport and Communications.

Minister Paschal Donohoe stated that he would bring the request back to Cabinet for reconsideration for inclusion in the revised plan.
