Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
229. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the community impact assessment made for the Cabra and Stoneybatter, Dublin 7 area when drafting BusConnects routes in the area; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6057/19]
As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure in the Greater Dublin Area, including the BusConnects programme.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
