A number of roads in Clara are set to benefit under the latest grants approved by Offaly County Council under the 2012 roadworks programme.

These include surface restoration works on the Clara/Ballycumber road at Erry and on the road from Ballicknahee towards Kilmalady on the Horseleap road, surface dressing works on the road from the Monastery junction towards Kilbride junction on the Horseleap road and surface pavement improvement works on the Clara/Tullamore road.

There will also be surface dressing works on the road at Heather Grove in Kilcoursey and on the Silverhill road in Kilcoursey as well as on-going improvement works on the approach roads to Clara.

The works have been welcomed by Clara Cllr Dervill Dolan. “While funding for road improvement and restoration works has been severely cut back for 2012, I’m glad a good level of funding for many essential road improvements in the Clara area was secured. Additional funding is also available for on-going maintenance works in the Clara area to address low cost improvement works.”
