Thurles is to benefit from a further €50,000 worth of investment under the jobs initiative. Local Minister, Alan Kelly, has signed off on funding for the provision of pedestrian path along the L4126 to extend the walkway around Thurles. The paths will be competed between the R60/L4126 junction and the L4126/L8020 junction.
“This will help the local economy in a small way and deliver a facility that will be used by cyclists and walkers from the town. It will also create a number of days work before the end of the year so it is to be welcomed,” stated Minister Kelly.
“The funding will enhance the walkway around Thurles and is delivered via smarter travel funding under the jobs initiative which was signed off earlier on this year. The Department of Transport were not able to complete some projects in Dublin and I have overseen the transfer of these funds to towns such as Thurles to deliver tangible projects before the end of the year.”
