A Donegal Deputy is calling on Local Improvement Schemes to be reintroduced as part of the 2017 budget.

Throughout the county of Donegal many people depend on these roads to gain access to their homes as well as main primary roads.

Previously these roads were grant aided by the Department and local residents made a 10% contribution and roadworks were then carried out by the County Council.

Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher says he has adressed the issue numerous times but now he will do all in his power to make sure it is included in the forthcoming budget.
