Lowry Confirms €635,000 For Bridge Works.

Independent TD, Deputy Michael Lowry.

Independent Deputy Mr Michael Lowry TD has stated that he has been pleased to confirm that the Department of Transport has allocated €400,000 towards work to be carried out on Ardfinnan Bridge, in South Co. Tipperary and a further €235,000 towards the replacement of Clonbeg Bridge, Aherlow, also in the South of the county.

Ardfinnan Bridge
The funding for Ardfinnan Bridge was sought by Tipperary Co. Council; to enable them to further continue with urgent, necessary repairs and renewal works required to the bridge’s structure.

Clonbeg Bridge
The €235,000 for Clonbeg Bridge is for the replacement / installation of an overall physical structure. Initially it was considered possible to repair this bridge, however, following on from a more in-depth survey, an engineer’s report has deemed it necessary to replace the structure in its entirety. This latter work is now expected to commence in July of this year.

“I am glad to be in a position to deliver on these 2 requests, initiated by Tipperary Co. Council, to the Department of Transport,” stated the Independent TD, Michael Lowry.
