A5 ROAD ‘BACK ON TRACK’ CLAIMS McGUINNESS

first_imgTHE A5 road project is back on track, the North’s deputy first minister Martin McGuinness has said.“It’s far from dead,” insisted the Derry politician last night.“I think, as a result of our discussions, we’re greatly heartened by what we’ve heard and we look forward to completing some work ourselves and the Taoiseach over the course of the coming days. “It’s fair to say it’s back on track again,” he added.First Minister Peter Robinson and Mr McGuinness met Enda Kenny in Dublin yesterday after attending the inauguration of Michael D Higgins as President.Mr Robinson said Dublin’s contribution to the road scheme would be “re-profiled rather than lost”.Joint financial support to dual the road at a cost of £850m was agreed as part of the St Andrew’s Agreement in 2006, and construction was expected to start in 2012. Earlier Fine Gael’s Joe McHugh claimed the Irish government part of the funding never existed in Fianna Fail government plans and projections.The Dublin administration has offered £50M over the next four years.Donegaldaily.com understands that further discussions will take place next week.A5 ROAD ‘BACK ON TRACK’ CLAIMS McGUINNESS was last modified: November 12th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:A5a5 road projectmartin mcguinnessroadlast_img
