The Climate Action Plan contains a number of commitments aimed at lowering the greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector. Action 91 in the plan commits to an expansion of cycling infrastructure thought the establishment of the Cycling Project Office. This action is being led by my colleague the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport and is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) as stated in the Climate Action Plan.
