G8 road work stoppages excessive - Lynch
Sinn Féin MLA Sean Lynch who is also the vice chair of the Regional Development Committee has labelled the stopping of road and street works for the G8 summit completely excessive.
Speaking today Mr Lynch said:
“The request by Road Service to stop road and street works for 11 days over the G8 summit is completely excessive.
“Such a request will delay current projects, require a rescheduling across the board and provisions would have to be made as to any possible loss of earnings to contractors and their employees.
“I can understand how perhaps areas around the International Airport and the venue for the G8 may be effected but to place a six county wide moratorium on road works cannot be justified.
“The Minster for Regional Development mustreview this decision and allow road works to continue in the vast majority of areas.”
