Repair our roads
Years of neglect has left Ireland’s road network in a sorry state. Local communities are driving on roads that are full of potholes and in major disrepair. This is reducing the safety of our roads and increasing travel time around the country. We will ensure that local authorities receive funding to target the repair of secondary and regional roads.
Fianna Fáil will establish a National Infrastructure Commission to plan over a 25 year period and make sure that Ireland has the infrastructure we need to thrive in the modern world.
Core issues in Transport
Better Regional & Local Road Netowrk
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.
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.
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.
