Deputy Noel Dempsey: Transport 21 provides for the electrification of the Maynooth and Navan lines, the Kildare line to Hazelhatch and the Northern line to Balbriggan.
The detailed planning and phasing of the work including the extent of electrification by line, is a matter in the first instance for Iarnród Éireann. I understand from the company that it is currently finalising its strategy for the electrification of these lines in parallel with its planning and design work on the Interconnector project.
