The City Centre Resignalling Project is part of the DART Expansion Programme which, as the Deputy is aware, is a series of interlinked projects that also have benefits as stand-alone projects.  The City Centre Re-signalling project is expected to be completed in 2019 and will allow for an increase in the number of trains travelling through the city centre.  This will enhance both speed and services on the rail network not just in the city centre but throughout the Greater Dublin Area (GDA).

Noting the role of the National Transport Authority (NTA) in ensuring the planning and delivery of the public transport infrastructure priorities in the GDA, I have forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for further response.
