McAleer welcomes A5 upgrade progress
Sinn Féin MLA Declan McAleer has welcomed progress on the A5 road upgrade project.
Mr McAleer said;
"I welcome the update today from my party colleague Martin McGuinness on last week's meeting of the North South Ministerial Council.
"It was encouraging to hear once again the commitment on the project coming from the meeting.
"Martin McGuinness told the Assembly that the inspector’s report on the project is due in May 2017 and that, subject to the successful completion of statutory procedures, it is expected to move to the construction phase in late 2017.
"This is a vital infrastructure project from the wider north west and I welcome that it is progressing and look forward to its completion."
