John O'Dowd MLA.
Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has said enhancing cross-border infrastructure can maximise the economic potential of the island, creating jobs and prosperity for workers and families across Upper Bann.
The Upper Bann spokesperson said:
“The commitment from the Irish government to cross-border infrastructure projects as part of their ten-year infrastructure and investment plan is a welcome development.
“Investment will be needed to deliver key strategic projects like the A5, the Ulster Canal, and improved road and rail links.
“Enhancing the road and transport networks across the island can maximise our economic potential as an island, and this is especially relevant to Upper Bann, where we have prime connectivity points for both road and rail.
“Sinn Féin will continue to challenge the Irish government to ensure this funding is delivered and these key projects go ahead to the benefit of workers and families across the island of Ireland.”
