Sinn Féin West Tyrone MLA Declan Mc Aleer and member of the Regional Development Committee has welcomed the opening of consultation on the Tully Bog Special Area of Conservation as part of the A5 Western Transport Corridor Scheme.

Mr. McAleer said,

"This is the final leg of the public consultation process on the A5 western corridor project and represents progress in moving to the next stage.

"This consultation will begin on the Wednesday 15th October and last until the 28th November.

"I share the hopes of the overwhelming majority of people in the west that this scheme will get underway as soon as possible thereafter.

"The A5 represents the prospect to create a new transport infrastructure for the North West region as well as opening the region up for employment and economic opportunities

"For our part, Sinn Féin will continue to keep the A5 firmly on the agenda in the Assembly, at the Executive, at the North South Ministerial Council and in Leinster House".
