As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has, on a non-statutory basis, responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure in the Galway City Area, including in consultation with Iarnród Eireann, railway infrastructure.

Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a more detailed reply to the specific questions asked. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
