Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
1077. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport further to Parliamentary Question No. 11 of 15 February 2018, the status of the expansion of the car parking capacity levels at Sallins and Naas railway train station; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [35521/18]
As the Deputy is aware and as outlined in my reply last February, the National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure and services in the Greater Dublin Area. Iarnród Éireann receive Exchequer funding via the NTA in relation to the provision of car parking at train stations on the heavy rail network including Sallins and Naas railway station.
In light of the NTA's responsibility in this area, I have forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for further update and direct reply.
