Review includes walking, cycling, public transport and land use.

A public consultation on a review of sustainable transport policy is set to this Friday 28th Feb at 5:30pm after the deadline was extended.

The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport said that the review was started after a commitment in the May 2016 Programme for a Partnership Government “to ensure services are sustainable into the future and are meeting the needs of a modern economy”.

It said: “The public consultation is designed to give stakeholders, interested parties and the general public the opportunity to reflect on the information and analysis in the papers, to share their views, and to contribute to the development of a Sustainable Mobility Policy Statement.”

The department said: “An extensive range of background papers has been produced looking at various different aspects of sustainable mobility and setting out questions designed to help assist with developing the new policy framework.”

The background reports can be found at

Submissions can be emailed to sustainablemobilityreview@dttas.gov.ie.
