Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
National Development Plan
73. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the extent to which projects that fall under his Department and are within the revised National Development Plan are at an advanced stage; the extent to which preliminary work has taken place or on-site works are in hand or proposed; the expected delivery date of each; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [49264/21]
I am pleased to have secured €35 billion in the revised National Development Plan to support our transport objectives over the years ahead. This is the largest investment in transport in the history of the State. It will transform how we travel, connect communities and help us to halve our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. 500,000extra daily walking, cycling and public transport journeys will be delivered by 2030, making it easier for people to travel in a sustainable way.
In terms of information on the progress of particular investment programmes and projects in the National Development Plan, I would like to advise the Deputy that information can be found in the Investment Projects and Programmes tracker on the Gov.ie website. The tracker is available at this link www.gov.ie/en/policy-information/96bb35-investment-projects-and-programmes-tracker/
