As Minister for Transport, I 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 light rail. 

Project Ireland 2020 provides funding to undertake appraisal, planning and design of LUAS network expansions and the Department understands that the NTA have studies planned in 2021 to consider the possibility of a Luas Line to Lucan.

Noting their responsibility in relation to this matter, I have referred your request to the NTA for their consideration and direct reply.  Please notify my office if you have not received a reply within 10 working days.
