TII’s mission is to deliver transport infrastructure and services, which contribute to the quality of life for the people of Ireland and support the country's economic growth. Consideration of archaeology is fully integrated into the national road and light rail scheme planning process and is directly managed by the TII Archaeology & Heritage Section. Their objective is to meet our statutory obligations, observe best practice, contribute to the efficient delivery of national road and light rail schemes and disseminate the results of TII-funded archaeological investigations. The digital heritage collections of Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) aim to fulfill this objective by making their heritage collections available online through the DRI.
The TII Digital Heritage Collections were established initially, as a collaborative project between the Discovery Programme, TII and DRI.
