Fianna Fáil TD for Louth and East Meath Declan Breathnach has received confirmation from Celtic Roads Group (CRG) that on Thursday 25th August it has put forward a significant revised proposal to Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) dealing with the key outstanding areas of difference between the two parties.
“CRG have said they are hopeful that this proposal will resolve the issue and that eFlow customers will be able to continue to use their tags at CRG toll plazas uninterrupted. CRG are looking forward to confirmation from TII in this regard as their talks continue.”
“This is despite the fact that the Minister for Transport Tourism and Sport has confirmed to me that he has no vires to intervene in this dispute. He stated that the statutory power to levy tolls on national roads, to make toll bye-laws and to enter into agreements relating to tolls on national roads is vested in Transport Infrastructure Ireland under Part V of the Roads Act 1993 as amended.”
The issue only affects eFlow tag holders. If the dispute is not resolved, the eToll website have advised customers of eFlow that if they want a tag that works on all tolled roads in Ireland then they will need to close their account with eFlow and open an account with an alternative tag provider.
