Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 36 and 37 together.

I refer to the Deputy's Parliamentary Question No. 52 of 9th March 2022.

The funding allocation for B5 Public Transport Investment for 2022 is €780.06m and is available to view on gov.ie - The Revised Estimates Volumes for the Public Service (www.gov.ie).

Capital funding in 2022 will be allocated to the following programmes: accessibility retrofit programme; bus programme; heavy rail investment; infrastructure manager multi-annual contract (heavy rail); light rail (Luas and Metro); and the ticketing and technology programme. The allocations are agreed with the relevant agencies at the beginning of the year but are subject to change.

The National Development Plan 2021 - 2030 provides total funding to the Department of Transport for 2023, 2024 and 2025 as follows:

The allocation for B5 Public Transport Investment for the years 2023 to 2025 will be decided during the annual Estimates process, and published in the Revised Estimates Volumes for each year.
