6 October, 2016 - by Ian Milne

Sinn Féin MLA Ian Milne has welcomed the official opening of the Magherafelt bypass.

The Mid Ulster MLA said:

"I welcome news that the A31 Magherafelt bypass has opened ahead of schedule.

"This represents a £35 million investment which will help to improve links for the movement of people, goods and services in the Mid-Ulster area to and from Belfast and north-east. 

"It will also significantly ease congestion in Magherafelt by up to around 50,000 vehicles every week.

"Hopefully it will also help business in Magherafelt, particularly in the run up to Christmas. 

"It is also welcome that a large infrastructural project has been completed ahead of schedule. 

"This is further evidence of the Executive delivering for communities west of the Bann and across the North."
