As Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport, I have responsibility for overall policy and funding in relation to both the national and the regional and local roads programmes. 

My Department is aware of a number of issues relating to the installation of services along public road corridors and consideration will be given, in consultation with other stakeholders and in the context of future Government priorities, to possible legislative changes aimed at striking an appropriate balance between the need to protect the strategic function of public roads and service installation.
