Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
As the Deputy may be aware, the National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure, including the feasibility study on the Athenry to Galway corridor to consider incremental improvements in train capacity between Galway and Athenry.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in this matter and the specific issue raised by the Deputy, I have referred the Deputy's questions to the NTA for a more detailed reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
