Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has welcomed the opening of a new stretch of the A6 road.
The Foyle MLA said:
“The opening of this new stretch of the A6 as part of the wider multi-million upgrade of the road is a welcome development.
“This new dual carriageway will improve road safety and cut journey times between Derry and Belfast.
“It will also help provide a boost to the local economy and will be particularly welcomed by hauliers and other commercial road users.
“Work is underway and is progressing well on the other phases of this vital infrastructure project and I look forward to seeing their completion in the time ahead.”
