‘Time to move forward and build A5 road’ – Begley

Sinn Féin MP Órfhlaith Begley has welcomed confirmation that the Irish Government will deliver €600m funding to help build the A5 road.

The West Tyrone MP said:

“It is welcome news that the Irish Government has today announced that it will provide over €600 million of funding to build the A5 road.

“We have consistently called on the government to increase its contribution to this important project in line with its previous commitments and today’s announcement represents positive progress.

“Transforming the A5 will save lives, create jobs and significantly cut journey times between the north-west and Dublin.

“The current A5 road has been the scene of heartbreak for too many families and has been held up for too long by objectors. Now is the time to move forward.

“Sinn Féin are committed to the A5 and we will work together with others in the Executive and the Dáil to ensure this new road is completed.”
