Transport | The extent to which North Kildare railway stations have planned sufficient adjacent car parking facilities.
* To ask the Minister for Transport the extent to which adequate car parking facilities are being planned to meet the requirements now and in the future adjacent to all railway stations throughout north Kildare; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
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 the DART+ Programme and its constituent projects.
Through the NTA, Iarnród Éireann receive Exchequer funding in relation to the provision of car parking at train stations on the heavy rail network in the GDA, including Counties Kildare and Meath.
Noting the NTA’s responsibility in the matters raised, including progress on DART+ West and DART+ South West, 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.
