Revised National Development Plan: Discussion
I will tell Mr. O’Neill where it is an issue. The Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, study on the barrier at the Dublin Port Tunnel says that we have the worst of NOx emissions in the country in this part of the city. It is caused primarily by the fact that we have a toll barrier. Each time a vehicle stops, it expends a litre of fuel into the atmosphere. Has there been any consideration on TII’s behalf to make a representation to remove that barrier or not?
