Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
78. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he will provide an update on the construction works at Kishogue train station; the reason the works were delayed; when the works are expected to be completed; when the station will be operational; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2212/23]
As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure in the Greater Dublin Area, including, in conjunction with Iarnród Éireann, the re-commissioning works at Kishogue Station.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a more detailed reply on the specific issue raised. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
