Coffey hits out at government’s “shameful” investment in Louth roads
Fianna Fáil’s Emma Coffey has slammed the current Government’s chronic lack of investment in Louth’s road infrastructure, calling it “shameful.”
The General Election candidate said road infrastructure in the county had been ignored for too long and vowed her party would reverse this if elected.
“For the last five years this Government has ignored road infrastructure in Louth and this shameful record cannot continue for any longer.
“Louth and many more counties along the border are being left behind as this government continues its two tier recovery. Connectivity is essential for people and industry in this county. We need modern roads, fit for purpose to have the opportunity to bring the recovery to Louth.
“The N2 Ashbourne to Ardee is a road project that is ready to progress. A strategic review has already recommended a dual carriageway cross section and it could go ahead. This Government has trumpeted the recovery, but by not funding projects such as this, Louth and counties along the border will be left behind.
“Fianna Fáil is committed to funding a road infrastructure that will allow Louth to flourish,” she said.
