Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure and strategic planning in the Greater Dublin Area.

I understand that in relaiton to the study referred to by the Deputy, the NTA in association with the Office of Public Works, Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council, commissioned Jacobs to complete a Transport and Mobility Options Study of the Phoenix Park.

Accordingly I have referred your question to the NTA for a more detailed reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.

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