Modern transport links are a major feature of any modern economy. I will continue to campaign in Dáil Éireann for continuing investment in our road, rail and bus services.

They are especially important for all Dublin West communities to enable residents to get to work, college or to access leisure and shopping facilities.

Joan was involved as a Minister in securing the funds to have many additional transport investments that will be of value in Dublin West put into the public capital programme.

These include proposals for express bus services on the 39/39A express routes as well the electrification of the whole Maynooth rail line.  That project will vastly improve the service for local commuters.
