Progress on A6 upgrade welcomed by Nicholl

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin Westminster General election candidate for East Derry Dermot Nicholl has welcomed news that tender documents for the Dungiven bypass should be issued in the early summer.

The announcement was made as part of Transport NI Northern Division manger Deidre Mackle’s annual report to Causeway Coast and Glens Council.

Mr. Nicholl said “In January 2017, the then Infrastructure Minister and my party colleague Chris Hazzard, decided the Department should take forward the procurement of the Dungiven to Drumahoe section of the A6 Derry to Dungiven Dualling Scheme, including a bypass of Dungiven.”

“Subject to the successful completion of the procurement process it is intended that construction of the Dungiven to Drumahoe section should commence in Spring 2018.”

“The people of Dungiven and surrounding areas know all too well of the environmental and health impact from the thousands of cars driving right through the town every day and they deserve to have this rectified.”

Cllr. Nicholl added “While I welcome this reaffirming of commitment to this vital piece of investment in the infrastructure of the North West, it is long overdue. Sinn Féin have supported the construction of a bypass from day one and we will continue to push for it untill it is completed.
