The Taoiseach says he'll look into funding for the Clontibret to the Border N2 road.
Last month, it was revealed that the section of road was one of a number of projects to be stalled by the TII.
The Ardee to Castleblayney part remains on track after a one million euro allocation for progress.
Local Sinn Fein TD Matt Carthy said the money intended for the road to the border was instead put to "pet projects" of the Transport Minister.
He called on the Taoiseach to provide clarity to the future of the works.
