Phillip Logan MLA welcomes the news that in the next six months, the Causeway Coast & Glens area will see the accomplishment of a number of infrastructure projects that will be of great benefit to the local community and visitors.
Phillip Logan said “I am delighted to hear the 70% of the work on the A26 Frosses Road dualling scheme is completed and that this £55million scheme is planned to be opened in the summer of 2017.
“There will also be an investment of £450,000 in the area as many roads will see upgrades including the B62 Ballybogey Road, Ballybogey, B67 Ballycastle Road, Coleraine, B74 Main Street, Feeny and B146 Causeway Road, Bushmills.”
“Other infrastructure works in the area recently completed include £2million invested to resurface 12 kilometres of carriageway including A26 Frosses Road, B16 Kilraughts Road, B62 Gate End/ Milltown Road, Ballymoney, A further £783,000 has been invested to provide surface dressing treatment on 53 kilometres of carriageway and more than 10 kilometres of rural roads have also been resurfaced under the Rural Roads Initiative at a cost of £500,000.”
“This is an astounding amount of infrastructure investment, and I am so please that it is being invested in North Antrim. This will help commuters and improve these areas for visitors and most importantly for the local people of these areas. Infrastructure works often causes a bit of disruption but Transport NI will do their best to try and alleviate disruption and when these works are completed they will be of great benefit. I will continue to lobby for better infrastructure for North Antrim as I see this as hugely beneficial for the area’s tourism and the economy.”
