Sean Fleming T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Finance is delighted to confirm the news that Laois County Council have been allocated €490,000 funding under the new Additional Outdoor Infrastructure Fund.
“Laois County Council applied for funding last April.
This funding will help ensure a Safe Outdoor Summer for the public as we gradually lift restrictions. Funding will include projects such as kerb widening to facilitate outdoor dining, new on street furniture, improved cycling facilities and traffic management changes that prioritise pedestrians and cyclists.
It is important that we can now enjoy the summer months and allow everyone in our community to meet in a safe manner. These new measures will not only benefit families and friends in our community but also help our local businesses as they re-open to the public.
I look forward to our communities enjoying these new measures following a very difficult time due to COVID.”
