Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Revised National Development Plan: Discussion
I thank the witnesses. It is excellent to have an opportunity to discuss the national development plan, NDP. I want to start with MetroLink. The preliminary business case has been submitted to the Department of Transport for review. Will Ms Graham explain what a business case looks like for a State body such as the NTA when it goes into the Department? Does it have costings and recommendations? Anyone who is familiar with a business case, such as someone setting up a business or an investor who wants a bank to give them money, would understand this. Does the same principle apply to a business case for MetroLink?
