The Government does not know full cost of M20 road from Cork to Limerick

Sources have indicated that it could, in fact, cost up to €1.2 billion and that the actual price may not emerge for some years to come.

The documents reveal that €35 million has already been spent which includes €20 million from 2008 to 2012 when it was then mothballed because of the recession. Technical advisors are now being paid €15 million as part of a contract to progress the development of the road.The documents address the issue of whether the previous attempt at building the road was “wrong” or not.

The party has said that if it enters Government it will be looking for funding to be directed at cycling, walking and public transport instead. Further documents released under Freedom of Information legislation show how a number of voters threatened to desert Fine Gael if the road was not built.
