How do we fund maintenance and repair on the Greenway

Dear editor

I believe a debate is now overdue, around how do we fund the maintenance of the Waterford Greenway.

The Greenway is essentially a new road (albeit closed to motor vehicles) that runs from the City to Dungarvan. This hugely popular amenity is going to be costly to maintain in both terms of council manpower and finance.

Presently the annual WC & CC roads budget is inadequate to maintain the counties roads. WC & CC Management has admitted to expect a further deterioration of our counties road network because of the failure of central government to provide enough funding.

A minor road in the Faithlegg area was turned down recently for funding even though its in a deplorable state and its also the right of way to twelve occupied houses. Essential services such as Caredoc, Health Nurse ect. are hesitant about using the roadway fearing damage to their vehicles. The local residents cars are in need of constant repair to keep them roadworthy.

I believe the greenway must be maintained to a high standard although I for one could not justify already meagre WC & CC roads funding being spent on the Greenway while people living on such roads as the one I've mentioned are left to fend for themselves and there is an abundance of roads in a similar condition around the county.

I believe responsible councillors must be willing to ask themselves the question, "where will we get the funding to maintain the Greenway" and personally I believe after a capital spend of €14 million to build Greenway, central government must now cough-up funding for Greenway repair and maintenance.

Le meas,

Cllr Pat Fitzgerald

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
