Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
536. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if the provision of a footbridge over the N4 at Collooney to connect the commercial zones with the town and ensure public safety will be supported; if funding will be provided for same; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9241/19]
As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for overall policy and funding in relation to the national roads programme. Under the Roads Acts 1993-2015, the planning, design and operation of individual roads is a matter for the relevant road authority in relation to local and regional roads, or for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), in conjunction with the local authorities concerned, in relation to national roads.
Noting the above position, I have referred the question to TII for a direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.
