Revised National Development Plan: Discussion
So it is three. I am going to be pretty direct. Only one line should be under consideration, namely, the upgrade of the existing line. Irish Rail has already proposed to look at that €60 million. That is the key one that should be considered. The NRA was just dealing with roads. When TII was formed, it was a merger of the Rail Procurement Agency and the NRA itself. TII has the function of securing the provision of, or to provide, such light railway and metro railway infrastructure as may be determined from time to time by the Minister or, in the case of such railway infrastructure within its functional area, by the NTA. Is the NTA involved in determining the rail routes under consideration for the M20 project?
