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. Under the Roads Acts 1993-2015, the planning, design, construction and maintenance of individual national roads (such as the N73) is a matter for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) in conjunction with the local authority concerned.

While I note your comments regarding the National Roads Design Office (NRDO), given the concerns raised, I have referred your question to TII for their attention and direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.
