13 April, 2015 - by Cathal Ó hOisín


Sinn Féin East Derry MLA Cathal Ó hOisín is calling on Minister Danny Kennedy to explain the cause of the latest delay in completing the upgrade of the Derry/Belfast rail link.

Mr Ó hOisín said:

“Work on this phase of the line was to have commenced at the beginning of May and be completed by December. In the latest delay in this project we have now been informed that work will not now commence until September with no projected completion date.

“Minister Danny Kennedy is withholding the report on the Project assessment citing 'commercial  confidentiality'. This is unacceptable and I am calling on Danny Kennedy to make a statement on the cause of these interminable delays to this project.
