A5 upgrade would benefit everyone - McDermott
Sinn Féin West Tyrone candidate Grace McDermott has said the upgrade of the A5 would benefit everyone in the wider north west area.
Mrs McDermott said;
"The A5 project is one of the most important infrastructural projects anywhere on the island of Ireland.
"It would help transform the economy of the entire north west region, particularly Tyrone, Derry and Donegal.
"It is absolutely ludicrous for anyone to suggest the A5 upgrade would only benefit one side of the community.
"Such comments show just how out of touch with reality David McNarry and UKIP are.
"The reality is that the A5 will benefit everyone, particularly businesses right along the route.
"Sinn Féin remains committed to the redevelopment of the A5 and will continue to push for it to begin as soon as possible."
