To ask the Minister for Transport if, in view of the conflicting information surrounding the Dublin Port Tunnel, he is considering a review of his position on supercube trucks using this tunnel.

Answered by Minister for Transport (Martin Cullen)
Following my announcement in October 2004 the operational height of the Dublin Port Tunnel will not be changed. The Tunnel is being completed as planned and will have an operational height of 4.65m.
It is the view of Dublin City Council and the National Roads Authority that the Dublin Port Tunnel will facilitate almost all of the HGV traffic currently using Dublin Port. Provision for those HGVs unable to use the Tunnel is a matter for Dublin City Council.
