The Sinn Féin MP for Foyle Elisha McCallion has encouraged people to have their say on the A5 redevelopment before a public consultation closes tomorrow (Friday, May 17).

Mrs McCallion said: "The public consultation on the A5 road upgrade project is set to close on Friday and I would encourage everyone to have their say.
"The A5 upgrade is vital for stimulating the economy of the entire north west region it passes through.

"This essential infrastructure project will also boost connectivity, cut journey times and improve road safety.

"This is the latest stage towards work beginning on this important project and I am looking forward to seeing progress being made."
