Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has welcomed today’s supreme court decision not to hear an appeal against the A6 Derry to Belfast road project.
The Foyle MLA said:
“The A6 upgrade is a key infrastructural project to help promote regional balance and was significantly moved forward by Chris Hazzard when he was Infrastructure Minister.
“I welcome today’s decision not to hear the appeal against the A6 upgrade of the section between Toome and the Moyola River. This decision clears the way for the work to commence on the scheme and for it to be completed as soon as possible.
“The A6 project is key to enhancing connectivity, improving journey times from Derry to Belfast and unlocking the economic potential of the north west region. The Derry to Belfast journey is one which is taken by thousands of motorists daily.
“The A6 upgrade represents significant investment in the region and has long been a key priority for Sinn Féin.
