Road Projects Data
1050. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the estimated cost of constructing 1 km of cycle path; the estimated cost of constructing one kilometre of footpath; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6740/20]
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 responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure, including cycling infrastructure.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a more detailed reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
