To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the number and value of capital payments distributed to Dublin City Council from the National Transport Authority for the funding of cycling infrastructure and schemes; the number and value of capital payments allocated for distribution to Dublin City Council for the funding of cycling infrastructure and schemes from the National Transport Authority in each of the years 2019 to 2022, in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport, including cycling infrastructure and schemes. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for the allocation of funding at project level.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's questions to the NTA for a more detailed reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
