I propose to take Questions Nos. 596 and 597 together.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for the development and implementation of public transport including both light rail and, in consultation with Iarnród Éireann, heavy rail.

Noting the responsibility of the NTA in these matters, I have forwarded the Deputy's questions to it for direct reply.  Please notify my office if you have not received a reply within 10 working days.
