Kimmins welcomes progress on A1 safety upgrade

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has said work on the long-awaited A1 safety upgrade must begin urgently.  

Speaking after the Department for Infrastructure announced plans to progress the A1 junctions phase two improvement scheme, Liz Kimmins said: 

“I welcome this decision on the A1 safety upgrade following the findings from the public inquiry held last year.

“This is an issue I have repeatedly raised to the Department for Infrastructure and the minister.

“The A1 is one of the most dangerous roads on our island and we need to see the necessary safety improvements delivered as soon as possible.

“Now, the minister needs to prioritise funding for this project and ensure no stone is left unturned to deliver it. 

“We have been waiting far too long for a scheme which is crucial to making one of Ireland’s most dangerous roads safer, should help save lives and prevent further tragedy on this road.”
