Trevor Lunn MLA said: “It’s time that the redevelopment of the Maze started. These costs underline the urgent need for work to begin there. I hope that Lisburn does not have to wait much longer because the town deserves delivery on this project.
“A redeveloped Maze site would be a perfect economic catalyst for Northern Ireland. It would not only bring benefits for our hard pressed construction industry but also to other sectors in the longer term.
“This is a site with massive potential which needs to be fulfilled as quickly as possible for the good of the area and the wider economy.”
