Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport infrastructure. The National Transport Authority (NTA) is responsible for the allocation of project specific funding of the type described by the Deputy to individual local authorities.

Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for amore detailed reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 51
