Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
63. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he will provide a full update in respect of completion of the pedestrian and cycle connections on all sections of the Sallins bypass; and the amount required in order to complete these works. [49153/21]
The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of each local authority, in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from local authorities' own resources supplemented by State road grants, where applicable. The initial selection and prioritisation of works to be funded is also a matter for the local authority.
My Department understands that all pedestrian and cyclist facilities which were included in the contract for the Sallins Bypass scheme are complete.
As the statutory road authority for its administrative area, it is a matter for Kildare County Council to consider any further works.
