Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Deputy is aware that a detailed transport assessment and strategy was prepared by the National Transport Authority on behalf of South Dublin County Council to support the development of the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) planning scheme and that this assessment and strategy is available to view on www.clonburris.ie

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) have statutory responsibility for the development and implementation of public transport infrastructure in the Greater Dublin Area.

Noting their responsibility in relation to this matter, I have forwarded your query to the NTA for their consideration and direct reply. Please notify my office if you have not received a reply within 10 working days.
