Dáil Eireann Debate
367. Mr. McCormack asked the Minister for Transport the progress which is being made in the decentralisation of the road haulage division to Loughrea, County Galway; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26303/05]
Minister for Transport (Mr. Cullen): Under the decentralisation programme, 50 posts are due to transfer to Loughrea. A suitable site has been identified and the Office of Public Works is currently in discussion with the county council about preparations necessary for lodging an application to obtain planning permission for the site.
The decentralisation implementation group has given indicative construction commencement and completion dates as fourth quarter 2005 and first quarter 2007, respectively. I expect to receive shortly from the OPW a revised timescale for the commencement and completion of construction works.
