A5 must take priority over Boris Johnson's fantasy bridge: MP
Tory MP Boris Johnson's support for a bridge between Ireland and Scotland has been branded '˜fantastical' by Sinn FÃ©in MP Ã“rfhlaith Begley who has reiterated her call for the prioritisation of the A5.
Mr. Johnson has newly indicated support for a Hiberno-Scottish link - first mooted in the DUP 2015 Westminster election manifesto but subsequently dropped from their 2017 document.
Ms. Begley said: “The vast majority of people in this area want to see the necessary improvements to the A5 happen as quickly as possible and are frustrated by the repeated delays as a result of unrepresentative legal challenges.
“On this basis of safety and priorities, it is clear that the A5 should be developed rather than indulge in fantasies such as Boris’ bridge.”
