No risk to A5/A6 projects – Mc Guinness

Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has insisted that the A5 and A6 road schemes will go ahead as planned, despite opposition from some landowners.

Mr. McGuinness was responding to an Assembly question by Foyle MLA Martina Anderson who sought assurances that the Derry to Aughnacloy and Derry to Dungiven roads would go ahead.

These are two vitally important road projects, Mr. McGuinness said, adding that while he understand that some landowners have concerns, but there will be processes and opportunities for inquiries where people can bring those forward.

He concluded there is no doubt that the two projects will go ahead.
