Sean Neeson MLA said: “I am concerned that it’s going to take too long for the work to be carried out on the road. The upgrading of the A8 is long overdue and I am pressing the Minister to try and get the process speeded-up.
“In the Assembly this week I questioned Conor Murphy regarding the timescale for the the road improvements. He indicated that work will commence by 2012 and be completed by 2015.
“This upgrade is urgently needed and I will continue to campaign vigorously and keep the pressure on for a quicker completion of this project.”
