Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
224. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport his plans to upgrade the rail stations throughout County Kildare in anticipation of higher volumes of through traffic; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [62755/21]
As Minister for Transport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding of public transport. The operation, maintenance and renewal of the rail network including the upgrading of stations on the network is a matter for Iarnród Éireann (IÉ) in the first instance.
Noting IÉ's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to it for direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
