Aodhán Ó Ríordáin has welcomed new funding made available for the pedestrian footbridge in Fairview.
The Dublin North Central TD was speaking after the Department of Transport made €500,000 available for improvements to the footbridge. The funding was part of a package of measures to improve transport infrastructure throughout the country.
Deputy Ó Ríordáin stated: “I greatly welcome the monies made available to upgrade the footbridge in Fairview.
“The bridge has been a fantastic addition to the area for local residents in a bustling neighbourhood with several small businesses and amenities. Moreover, the foot-bridge provides safe access for many students from schools in the area to Fairview Park for various sporting activities.
“This €500,000 will prove vital to improve the pedestrian bridge which has not been appropriately maintained over the last few years."
