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.
