Written answers (Question to Transport)

The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads (RLR) together with traffic management measures are the statutory responsibility of each local authority, in accordance with the relevant legislation. In this case the responsible local authority is Kildare County Council.

Noting that your query also refers to the role of the NTA in this matter and the NTA's responsibility for implementation of works in the Greater Dublin Area, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a more detailed reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
