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 Councils' own resources supplemented by State road grants.

Tipperary County Council is the responsible authority for management and implementation of the remaining elements of the Thurles Inner Relief Road. I understand that the Council is endeavouring to resource the project at present.
