Continued investment in our ports and airports is crucial, particularly in the post-Brexit environment. There will be a particular focus on cooperation and joint development of border areas that open up potential for an all-island economy.

Key actions for international connectivity will include a new runway for Dublin airport, continued development of Cork and Shannon airports, investment in Ireland West airport, Knock, and for smaller airports under the Regional Airports Programme. There will also be major development of Dublin, Cork, Shannon-Foynes and other ports, as well as investment in transport connectivity to ports.

See National Strategic Outcome 6 of the National Development Plan 2018-2027 for the full detail.
