Reform infrastructure planning

Good infrastructure takes time to deliver, and it is vital that we plan for our future to prevent a repeat of the housing and transport crises we are currently experiencing. Fianna Fáil has proposed that a new National Infrastructure Commission tasked with planning ahead over a 25 year period, beyond the limited 5 year cycle of current capital plans, should be established.

This would be set up by reforming Transport Infrastructure Ireland and drawing from the Department of Transport, National Transport Authority, Sustainable Energy Authority and local authorities and the commission should set out a new framework for the development of transport in Ireland over the coming years. In doing so, it would deliver the objectives and targets set out in the National Planning Framework.

All Issues in Transport

Better Regional & Local Road Network

A good road network, reliable public transport and modern ports and airports, are key to balanced regional growth and Ireland’s transition to a green economy.

Improving Public Transport

Everyday thousands of Irish commuters spend hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic or on overcrowded buses, with no alternative to get to work.

Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

Currently, buying an electric vehicle is not a viable option for too many Irish people. If Ireland is to meet our climate change targets, this must change.

Establish A National Infrastructure Commission

Fianna Fáil has proposed that a new National Infrastructure Commission tasked with planning ahead over a 25 year period beyond the limited 5 year cycle of current capital plans should be established.

Protecting Ireland’s Ports and Airports

two thirds of Irish exports shipping to continental Europe do so via the United Kingdom, owing to faster connection times and the UK land bridge.

Tackling Congestion

To tackle congestion, there has to be viable and dependable alternatives to private car transport. This means investing in Ireland’s public transport network to ensure that all commuters have an easy way to get to work, whether by cycling, hopping on a bus or train, or by walking.
