Key transport infrastructure projects to get €50 million from EU

Words: Roger Milne

Transport minister Paschal Donohoe has welcomed EU funding totalling more than €50 million for five key infrastructure projects, mainly port-related and involving schemes in Dublin, Shannon and Cork.

This follows the news that the Ringaskiddy project in the Port of Cork has recently been granted planning permission, while this week the Alexander Basin redevelopment project was given the green light by An Bord Pleanála. 

The latter represents the largest-ever infrastructure development project proposed for Dublin Port.

Donohoe said: “This is a further boost for infrastructure investment in Ireland. These five projects will allow for future growth and development which will ultimately help with job creation.”

He added: “The continued commercial development of the port companies is a key strategic objective of the government which will support job creation across the country as they are progressed in the years to come.”
