Written answers (Question to Transport)

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure and services in the Greater Dublin Area.  As the Deputy is aware, Iarnród Éireann receive Exchequer funding via the NTA in relation to refurbishment works at train stations on the heavy rail network such as Howth Junction & Donghmede.

In light of the NTA's responsibility in this area, I have forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for further reply on the information sought and issues raised. 

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A.
