Answered by the Minister for Transport
My Department is preparing a 10 year transport investment framework. The draft framework takes account of the work already done on investment priorities under the current capital envelope to end 2009. It also takes account of the various strategic studies completed by the Department and its agencies, including 'A Platform for Change' which had recommended, amongst other things, the development of a metro to take in Clondalkin and a light-rail line to Lucan.
An outline of the draft 10 year transport investment framework is currently under consideration. I will bring specific proposals to Government in due course.
