Road Improvements ahead?

The Irish minister for finance has told a conference in Co Down that his government could spend billions of pounds to improve Northern Ireland’s infrastructure. Brian Cowen said the completion of a high quality road network linking Dublin, Belfast and the north west by 2013 were among the government’s priorities ...

The inclusion of the Letterkenny/Derry gateway will introduce a powerful cross-border dimension to balanced regional development. The Irish government is already committed to investing heavily in projects that directly benefit Northern Ireland,” he said. “We are investing in the development of integrated all-island infrastructure, for example, roads infrastructure with the completion of the Dublin to Belfast road corridor and the upgrade of other major roads to the north.”

It is about time, want to start with the Lifford, Ballybofey stretch.

Construction on the Ballybofey by-pass is going to start in the near future, and it's supposed to be a dual-carriageway which make getting to Lifford easier. Plus, it looks like there are plans to upgrade the route from LIfford to Ballybofey too. See the "Planned upgrades" section at this page:
