I propose to take Questions Nos. 391 and 392 together.
As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure including BusConnects.
I would note that there has been extensive public consultations held by the NTA in relation to both the redesign of the bus network and the proposed delivery of new bus priority measures, such as improved bus lanes. These consultations have included extensive personal engagement with communities through public information sessions, the establishment of local community fora and one-to-one offers of engagement with property owners who might be impacted by infrastructure proposals. This is in addition to the information published online as referred to by the Deputy.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a direct reply. I would ask the Deputy to contact my private office if she does not receive a reply within 10 days.
