Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.  Matters relating to improvements at individual railway stations, including maintenance works at Howth Junction and Donaghmede stations, are day-to-day operational issues for Iarnród Éireann in the first instance and I have no function in such matters. Noting this I have referred the Deputy's question to the Chief Executive of Iarnród Éireann for direct reply.  Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.
