  72.  Mr. Durkan  Information on Bernard Durkan  Zoom on Bernard Durkan   asked the Minister for Tourism, Transport and Communications  Information on Seamus Brennan  Zoom on Seamus Brennan   whether he has received a request for a capital grant from Iarnród Éireann towards the reopening of Sallins railway station, County Kildare, for commuter traffic; if he will favourably consider such a request; if any research has been done to determine the possibility of such a proposal; whether EC funds are available for such matters; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for Tourism, Transport and Communications (Mr. S. Brennan): Information on Seamus Brennan  Zoom on Seamus Brennan  I have not received any request from CIE for a capital grant towards the re-opening of Sallins railway station, County Kildare, for commuter traffic. The question of re-opening the station is, under the Transport Acts, a matter entirely for Iarnród Éireann.

The company have informed me that market research which it has carried out in the area indicates that demand is insufficient to justify reopening the station at this stage.
