Funding of €380,000 has been sanctioned to complete the road at Claremount in Claremorris.
This funding has been allocated under the Smarter Travel Scheme.
Local Fine Gael Councillor Tom Connolly says this funding is hugely important to benefit the local school, nursing home and two housing estates.
Cllr. Connolly has been speaking to Midwest Radio’s Michael D. McAndrew.
