Businesses all agree A5 is the road to take

As president of Omagh Chamber of Commerce and Industry, I am writing to highlight our full support for the A5 western transport corridor.

As representatives of more than 100 businesses in the Omagh area, I cannot stress enough the importance of this development.

The A5 will finally bring infrastructure in the west of the province into the 21st century.

This project will secure immediate jobs and secure development and investment for the future. It will connect Omagh and the west to Belfast and Derry.

It will allow the people of Omagh to travel safely to Belfast and Derry, with fewer fatalities.

If no other benefit came from bringing the A5 western transport corridor to fruition than to save one life, it would be worth it.

It is the most consulted-on infrastructure project in DRD history.

Over 100 recommendations were included in final planning.

Not only do all of the democratically elected representatives support this project, so do all of the chambers and business organisations.


President, Omagh Chamber of Commerce and Industry
