Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has welcomed confirmation that work on the Drumahoe to Dungiven section of the A6 road upgrade will officially begin today.
The Foyle MP said:
“News that the A6 dualling scheme between Drumahoe and Dungiven is set to begin today is a positive step forward for the city.
“Work is already well underway on other sections of the A6 and when completed, this road upgrade will reduce journey times between Derry and Belfast which is vital for growing our economy and increasing connectivity.
“It will also make it much easier for visitors and tourists to travel to the city.
“This has been made possible because of the work to take this vital infrastructure project forward carried out by Chris Hazzard as Infrastructure Minister.
“This, along with other key infrastructure projects such as the A5 and the transport hub at the old Waterside train station, will all enhance this city and district for locals and others.”
