The Newry and Armagh MP said, “The tragic loss of life that has occurred every year on this road expose the flaws in the A1’s safety standards and we need to address this as soon as possible.



“For the families that have lost a loved one on the A1 and for those that have been campaigning tirelessly for these improvements, this is a matter of justice.

“By closing the central reservation and building new flyovers for the A1, this road will be at a higher standard of safety that will surely mitigate the chances of accidents occurring on this road and help prevent another tragedy.



“I thought it was necessary to attend the Public Inquiry to voice me and my party’s categorical support for these safety improvements.

He added, “Sinn Féin will continue to campaign for the realisation of this essential scheme.”
