Oireachtas committee to hold hearing into N2-A5 improvements

The Oireachtas Transport Committee is to hold a publicv hearing into some of the proposed improvements on the N2 - A5, including the Slane bypass and the government's promise to co-fund the A5 section between Ballygawley and Derry.

The hearing is taking place at the behest of Labour's Transport Spokesperson Joe Costello, who sought the hearing after meeting a number of campaigners with concerns about the road this week.
