I thank the witnesses for coming before the committee. I thank the committee for accommodating me. Mr. Walsh is aware of the huge increase in traffic to Rosslare Europort as a result of Brexit. We have an issue, particularly in the local area, whereby we have had an increase of 400% in commercial traffic travelling through and to the small villages of Kilrane, Rosslare and Tagoat. The issue for many of the locals is that there is not great traffic management. As a matter of fact, there is no traffic management. The locals are complaining about large articulated vehicles parking on the roadside. I am not by any stretch blaming the hauliers or the drivers. It is simply because nowhere is provided for them. Will the witnesses give me information on this? Are there plans for this? Have they visited the area recently?
