Delegation puts pressure on Good Friday Committee to deliver stalled road
Councils from the North-West have been given a commitment by the Joint Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement that it will champion the case for a dual carriageway connecting the North-West to Dublin.
A delegation from the A5 Working Group, which represents Derry, Donegal, Dungannon and South Tyrone Monaghan, Omagh and Strabane Councils and the cross-border groups ICBAN and the North West Regional Cross Border Group, gave evidence to the Committee in Dublin last Thursday.
In its presentation the delegation highlighted that development of the key strategic route into the North-West, from Dublin to Donegal/Derry, including the A5 from Aughnacloy to Derry, is clearly part of the outworking of the Good Friday Agreement which recognised the importance of ensuring equality of opportunity and included a commitment to policies for sustained economic growth and stability and promoting social inclusion.
