Written answers (Question to Transport)

This Question is about the goodwill payment of €5,000 per acre which was part of an Agreement concluded with the IFA relating to land acquisition. As the implementation of individual road schemes and the arrangements in relation to individual landowners is a matter for the NRA and the local authority concerned, I have referred the question to the NRA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.
