As the Deputy is aware the National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure in the Greater Dublin Area, including individual projects within the Sustainable Urban Transport programme, and administers the funding for the programme on a non-statutory basis in regions outside of the Greater Dublin Area.

The Sustainable Urban Transport programme has replaced the Sustainable Transport Measures Grant Programme as referred to by the Deputy.

The allocation, and draw down, of funding in respect of individual projects is managed by the NTA in conjunction with the relevant local authorities, accordingly I have referred your question to the NTA for a more detailed reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.

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