Racv pleads for calder highway funding boost
DUP MLA Jim Daly says any attempt to bring down the cost of road maintenance will depend on how the funding is divided up between the two parties
The Government faces calls to provide more money for Northern Ireland’s roads because of the impact they will have on an already expensive problem with a further hike of more than 80% being recommended for the 2016-17 spending re더킹카지노view.
DUP MLA Jim Daly says any attempt to bring down the cost of road maintenance will depend on how the funding is divided up between the two parties.
DUP Fianna Fáil Finance spokesman John Pugh said any funding increase could be used to provide the necessary services to Northern Ireland.
“They’re very anxious to see how they can get the money and we hope they can find the money – otherwise it will be wasted,” he said.
“It would be good for them to see how it is divided, whether they have the resources or if they don’t.”
Road maint우리카지노enance on Ulster’s Derry road is set to be affected with the cost of repairs set to go up between £15 million and £20 million per annum.
The NI Executive has recommended an overall increase in the Northern Ireland Government’s share of the cost of road maintenance of £20 million per annum, up from the current £14 million.
‘Too expensive바카라사이트‘ to run without funding, DUP says
Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness, deputy leader of Sinn Féin, has hit out at suggestions there is enough funding to run Northern Ireland’s roads without it being linked to the public finances.
Mr McGuinness said the problem of an increasing backlog of work to be completed by year-end was too big for the Government to continue funding it by itself as it was too costly to run without any extra funding.
“A number of issues that have raised serious question marks concerning the future sustainability of the Government’s funding policy, including the Government’s financial position and the continued high level of debt that it carries in its accounts, need to be addressed. This is a complex, challenging problem for the Government, as is everyone else, and a priority of the Executive,” he added.
