109. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he will ensure in the course of the provision of the extension of the Luas to Confey, Leixlip, Maynooth and Kilcock that the disruption to local populations in each of the towns and surrounding areas is minimised both in the course of construction and thereafter arising from its design and operation; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As the Deputy is aware, as Minister for Transport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding of public transport in Ireland, including in relation to the rail network. The National Transport Authority, or NTA, has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure in the Greater Dublin Area, including the DART+ programme.

Noting the NTA's responsibility in this matter and the specific issues 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.
