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, including cycling and walking infrastructure, and work in conjunction with the relevant local authorities on individual projects.

In this instance the NTA are working with Galway County Council on the development of the Oranmore Local Transport Plan as part of the Active Travel Programme. Noting the NTA's responsibility in this matter, I have referred your question to them for a more detailed reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.
