Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport)

As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for overall policy and funding in relation to the national roads programme. The construction, improvement and maintenance of individual national roads, including repair and maintenance works on the M50, are matters for the National Roads Authority (NRA) under the Roads Acts 1993 to 2007. Noting this I have referred the Deputy's question to the NRA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.
