Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

The programme for Government contains a commitment to develop a metro with a link to Dublin Airport. I have received the revised outline business case for phase one, which involves a line from the airport to the city centre, from the Railway Procurement Agency. I am currently finalising my proposals on the metro in the context of the wider need of the greater Dublin area and I expect to bring this to Government in the coming weeks.
