Neeson hails road upgrade plan

East Antrim Alliance MLA Seán Neeson has welcomed the announcement of the route of the upgraded road between Larne and Belfast. He said the move was long overdue and stated it will provide a massive boost to the Port of Larne.

Seán Neeson MLA said: “I very much welcome this announcement. The improvement to the A8 has been long overdue. Regrettably, there have been quite a substantial number of fatal accidents on the road in recent years.

“This upgrade will be a major boost to the Port of Larne and will bring the road up to the standard of a European trans-network road.

“Along with the upgrading of the Westlink, this will be a major boost to the whole of East Antrim.”
