Funding for Mayo Regional and Local Roads has been slashed by €96,780,960 since 2007 according to Sinn Féin General Election Candidate, Cllr Rose Conway-Walsh. Cllr Conway-Walsh said: “It is outrageous that funding for Mayo roads has been decimated to such an extent that the accumulative affect means we have lost out on almost €100 million even to stand still. I am so disgusted by the lies and spin being fed to people in Mayo that I sat down and did an analysis of the cuts to roads budgets from 2007 to 2015. It was obvious to me that the regional and local roads in this county are deteriorating rapidly as many have not had maintenance or repairs for over a decade. Many of these roads are barely passable and the plain truth is that there is no money to do the necessary works.”
