As Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport, I have responsibility for overall policy and securing capital funding in relation to the national roads programme.  Under the Roads Acts 1993-2015 and in the context of delivering the Government's commitments arising out Project Ireland 2040, the planning, design, and construction, including the distribution of funding for individual national roads, is a matter for TII in conjunction with the local authorities concerned. 

Noting the above position, I have referred the question to TII for a direct reply.  Please advise my private office if a reply is not received within 10 working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
