The information requested by the Deputy is currently being collated by my officials and will be forwarded to the Deputy within 10 working days.

The following deferred reply was received under Standing Order 42A
I refer to Parliamentary Question No. 241 for answer on 30 January 2019. As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and funding in relation to public transport, the national roads programme and sports planning and development.
The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure, including procurement of same.
My Department allocates the national roads programme capital budget to Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) to deliver the programme. Under the Roads Acts 1993-2015, the planning, design and operation of individual national roads is a matter for TII, in conjunction with the local authorities concerned.
Sport Ireland has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of the National Sports Campus.
Noting the responsibility of the NTA, TII and Sport Ireland in this matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the agencies for direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.
