Council assess how much money will be available for roads damaged by weather

Donegal County Council's Roads Department is assessing the money it's received for the regional road network to determine how much money will be available for emergency road repairs after the recent wintry weather.

Roads Director John Mc Laughlin says there's more scope for the council to transfer funds from one project to another and ensure that the most important repair jobs are done.

However, he says rather than provide the council with extra money, the government is giving the authority more flexibility.
