As Minister for Transport I have responsibility for overall policy and securing exchequer funding in relation to the National Roads Programme.

Under the Roads Acts 1993-2015, and in line with the National Development Plan (NDP), the planning, design and construction of individual national roads is a matter for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), in conjunction with the local authorities concerned.TII seeks to deliver the National Roads Programme in line with Project Ireland 2040, the National Planning Framework and the NDP.

The Programme for Government includes a commitment to bring forward the planned review of the NDP from 2022 and use the review to set out an updated NDP for the period to 2031. The review of the NDP will be aligned with the National Planning Framework and Project Ireland 2040. Work is underway within my Department to contribute to this planned review. Questions in relation to the review of the NDP generally may be addressed to my colleague the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform.
