€150,000 of the Bridge Rehabilitation Works funding is for Clieveragh, Listowel and €55,000 for Moybella North Bridge.

The Restoration Improvement Programme will see €2.2 million spent on over 18km of works in the Listowel MD, including €300,000 on 3km of the L-1021 Moyvane to Tarmons, and €222,000 on 900 metres of the R551 Ballyheigue to Ardfert.

€648,000 will be spent on almost 30km of works in the Restoration Maintenance Programme.
