A local TD has raised a survey of noise close to Shankill, Paulstown with the Government and is also looking to see when the clamour can be reduced.

Fianna Fáil's John McGuinness asked the Minister for Transport for his plans for a survey of the motorway close to Shankill, Paulstown in Kilkenny, in order to determine the works required to reduce the level of noise from passing motorway traffic at this location.

Minister Shane Ross said: “As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for overall policy and funding in relation to the national roads programme.

“The planning, design and operation of individual road projects is a matter for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) under the Roads Acts 1993-2015 in conjunction with the local authorities concerned.

“Noting the above position, I have referred the Deputy’s question to TII for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you don’t receive a reply within 10 working days.”
