Councillor calls for more urgency in progressing A5 link

A Donegal councillor says the lack of progress on the proposed new N14 Lifford to Manorcunningham road means that the new A5 North of the border could be completed long before it.

Cllr Dessie Larkin says it's ironic that just a few years ago, the question was could the preparation work for the new A5 be completed fast enough to catch up with progress in Donegal?. Now, he says, the situation has reversed completely.

Cllr Larkin wants Donegal County Council and the NRA to invest a new sense of urgency into the N14 plans, particularly given the state of the current road:[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/dlark830.mp3[/podcast]
