Anderson welcomes assurance on A5 and A6

Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has welcomed confirmation that progress on the A5 and A6 will not be slowed down in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.  

The Foyle MLA was commenting after quizzing the Minister of Infrastructure on the status of the flagship A5 and A6 road projects.

Martina Anderson said:

”I welcome assurances from the Minister that progress on projects such as the A5 and A6 will not be slowed down. 

“The Sinn Féin Minister for Finance has already delivered the highest allocation of capital funds in the history of the Department of Infrastructure.

“These resources need to be utilised to deliver  infrastructural projects and redress regional disparities. 

“Proper investment in adequate road infrastructure is absolutely vital in areas such as the north west which have borne the brunt of past neglect. 

“The A5 and A6 projects will help transform Derry and the North West’s economic fortunes, and will provide essential connectivity to the rest of the island. 

“I am utterly committed to ensuring these projects are delivered. 

“As MLA for Foyle and a member of the Infrastructure Committee, I will continue to follow the development of these flagship projects and hold the Minister to account.”
