Deputy McGinley says government had no choice but to shelve road projects

Donegal South-West Fine Gael Deputy Dinny McGinley has said that Government had little choice but to shelve a number of road projects in Donegal.

It emerged yesterday that that several National and Secondary Road projects will not go ahead because of a lack of funds.

Proposed work on the N56 between Dungloe and Glenties and Mountcharles and Inver will not now go ahead while improvements to the N14 Lifford to Letterkenny and Lifford to Stranorlar are shelved.

Deputy McGinley said the country is broke and these projects can only go ahead when money is available:
