The Deputy will be aware that the draft Cork Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy was published by the National Transport Authority (NTA), in association with Cork City Council, Cork County Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland, in May of this year for public consultation.

Noting the NTA's responsibility in this matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the Authority for direct reply in relation to the finalisation of the Strategy following the public consultation process.  Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.

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