Wicklow Fine Gael TD, Deputy Simon Harris, has welcomed new funding for remedial works at Arklow Harbour. The grant, for €1,017,344, was announced today (April 12th) by the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport.
“I am delighted that the Minister has awarded a grant for this important work and I trust the Government will continue to support Arklow Harbour. In these difficult economic times it is promising to see this new Government recognise the vital infrastructural and economic role played by our regional harbours,” said Deputy Harris.
“This funding is broken down as follows:
- Dredging of harbour €700,000
Wave mitigation €300,000
Retention money on 2010 works €17,344
I have no doubt that these funds will be put to good use for the benefit of Arklow, and as a result will be of benefit to our county as a whole,” concluded Deputy Harris.
