Ceisteanna (271)

Jack Chambers

Ceist:

271. Deputy Jack Chambers asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if the overcrowding issues on peak rail services on the Docklands M3 Parkway route will be addressed; if more carriages will be added to these peak services in order to address the problem of overcrowding; his views on whether this overcrowding will discourage persons from using public transport; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the Docklands area is set for further development which will create greater demand for a high quality rail service; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
