Clarity needed on the location of ‘Park and Ride’ in Dungiven - Archibald

14 September, 2020 - by Caoimhe Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has called on the Infrastructure Minister to provide clarity on the location of the 'Park and Ride' for Dungiven.

The East Derry MLA said:

'I have asked the Minister for an update on the location of the 'Park and Ride' in Dungiven and when it is scheduled to be in place.

'Construction of the A6 including the Dungiven bypass is progressing well but as yet despite consistent engagement with DfI and Translink over the past number of months, not even the location of the 'Park and Ride' has been confirmed.

'The 'Park and Ride' will be invaluable for the people of Dungiven and the surrounding area, as well as being necessary infrastructure to ensure people have the opportunity to make public transport their first choice for travel as we seek to decarbonise transport as part of our overall efforts to tackle the climate emergency.'
