WEXFORD Fianna Fáil TD James Browne has harshly criticised the Government for failing to make any reference to Rosslare-Europort or the Dublin to Rosslare rail line in a letter sent to the EU Transport Commissioner about the TEN-T core network.
The EU TEN-T programme aims to create a European-wide network of transport routes. The network is currently being reviewed and these routes will benefit from additional funding.
The designation of Rosslare Europort and Rosslare rail line as core points under the TEN-T programme could have secured the future of both services.
Minister Shane Ross isn’t listening… he completely ignored Rosslare
Speaking to the Wexford Courier, Deputy Browne said: “In the past three and a half years, I have raised the potential of Rosslare Europort and the Rosslare rail line numerous times in the Dáil.
“However, it’s clear that Minister Shane Ross isn’t listening. He had the opportunity to explain to EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc why Rosslare Europort is critically placed for the transport of goods post-Brexit. Instead, he completely ignored Rosslare.”
