Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
535. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport his Department's plan for the maintenance and restoration of Broadstone Station, Dublin 7; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that a wall has been erected in front of Broadstone Station; and if so, the reason for this wall. [35906/16]
The maintenance and restoration of Broadstone Depot is a matter, in the first instance, for Córas Iompair Éireann (CIE) who own the Depot. The National Transport Authority (NTA) is responsible for the implementation and development of public transport infrastructure projects, including Luas Cross City. I understand that the wall erected in front of the Depot, that the Deputy refers to, is part of the Luas Cross City project.
In light of this, I have referred the Deputy's question to both CIE and the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
