Sinn Féin MEP, Bairbre de Brún today attending the official opening of the A1 Beech Hill to Cloghogue dual carriageway said: "I congratulate everyone involved in the project on their tremendous achievement of having this 12km stretch of road upgraded to full dual carriageway standard, 5 months ahead of schedule"

"The A1 project ensures the completion of the final link on the key strategic route between Belfast and Dublin, making a significant contribution to social and economic development on an all-Ireland basis, while promoting economic growth, competiveness and balanced regional development.

"I welcome the inclusion of this key transport route as part of the Trans European Transport Network, with an EU contribution of £20m overall and £10m for this final 12km stretch of road. Work on our road, rail and communication network will not only develop our all Ireland links. It will also build better links with the rest of Europe for communities North and South" CRÍOCH
