He said “I have had a number of requests from residents of Ardnashee and Farren Park for an update on the scheme designs presented at the last A2 dualling presentation which included a through road through Ardnashee/Farren Park area.


“This caused concern to many residents and I also raised these concerns with the department. I have now been informed by the Department  of Infrastructure that they are working towards another public information event in early 2019.


“This will be a similar format to the exhibition in May 2018 and will show how the scheme has moved forward since then.


“They have also advised that the Ardnashee / Farren Park proposal shown in May is being reviewed against all their assessment criteria and the result will be shown to the public at that the next public information day. The views expressed by residents and others are being taken into account as the detail is developed.



“If  any resident has any queries please feel free to contact me 07743175709.
