Govt Chief Whip welcomes ‘another piece in the infrastructure jigsaw for Donegal’

Donegal TD Joe McHugh has welcomed the announcement of a new 25.5km stretch of the A6 as ‘vital for Donegal’.

The Department for Infrastructure in the North says work will begin this Spring on the new road from Drumahoe just outside Derry City which will also bypass Dungiven.

Government Chief Whip McHugh said the new dual carriageway running all the way to the M2 to Belfast is ‘another piece in the infrastructure jigsaw for Donegal’.

The completion of the A6 will provide vital west-east links for west Ulster and a dual carriageway all the way from Derry to Belfast.
