Wicklow Municipal District implements a roads programme each year. This programme is funded mainly from central government-provided funding and can be supplemented by some local level discretionary funding from our local councillors. Projects undertaken are selected on a prioritised basis based on a number of factors, including annual road condition surveys, accident history records, historical works records and cost/benefit analysis. Selected projects will typically involve a number of road improvement projects on regional, local and housing estate roads located throughout the Wicklow Municipal District area and are undertaken using a combination of our own direct labour crews, plant hire contractors and road-surfacing contractors.
In addition to our core roads programme and depending on the level of additional funding made available to us in a given year, we may also undertake new footpath construction works; existing footpath repair and renewal works; road safety improvement works; Community Involvement Schemes (CIS), which target improvements on remote rural or cul de sac public roads on a shared cost basis; and Local Improvement Schemes (LIS), which target improvements on privately owned laneways on a shared cost basis. Again, these projects are selected on a prioritised basis based on a number of factors, including annual footpath/road condition surveys, accident history records, historical works records and cost/benefit analysis.
