Flood works won’t be affected by cost cutting

OPW Minister Kevin Boxer Moran says no flood defence or arterial drainage projects will be affected by the over run on the Children’s hospital.

The Longford Westmeath Independent Alliance TD says his budget for flood works is over €100 million, with around 74% of that earmarked for flood defence and most of the remainder going on arterial drainage schemes.

Speaking on the Joe Finnegan show this morning Deputy Moran says while some smaller projects he had hoped to work on this year might not go ahead now, he can reassure people there will be no issues with projects already announced or even some that have not yet been fully announced.
