Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for overall policy and funding in relation to the national roads programme while responsibility for individual road projects is a matter for Transport Infrastructure Ireland in conjunction with the local authorities concerned. As regards the M50, the ring road was constructed in sections over an extended period of time.

Noting the above position, I have referred the Deputy's question to TII for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.

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