€20million Funding For Pathfinder Project In Naas Withdrawn By Minister Eamon Ryan

It's understood the Minister was unhappy with the "slow pace" in which the project was progressing

Minister for the Environment Eamon Ryan has withdrawn the €20million funding set aside for the Pathfinder Project in Naas. 

The aim of the project was to transform part of the town centre, especially around Corban's Lane, New Row and Murtagh's Corner, to make those areas more cycling and walking friendly. 

However, Kfm understands that Minister Ryan was frustrated with the pace in which the project was progressing, and has now pulled the funding. 

Kildare County Council communicated that the Part 8 approval would likely be in quarter 3 of next year, but the Minister had stipulated previously it must be completed by quarter 1 or 2.

The Council says it will continue to explore all possible options to fund the progression of the project, including maintaining open communications with Minister Ryan's Department.
