Written answers (Question to Transport)

Section 10 of the Roads Act 1993 as amended by the Roads Act 2007 provides for the classification of national, regional and local roads and as such periodic reviews are undertaken in that regard.

It is a matter for Meath County Council to decide whether to make a submission regarding the re-classification of the R132. Any such request would be considered as part of the periodic review process.
