DfI Minister Chris hazzard

“The Judgement today has ruled out five of the six grounds for judicial review and means that the substantive case will be heard on the one issue relating to the habitats directive.

“While I had hoped that we would be able to proceed with this strategically important project, we will play our part to ensure that as Justice Maguire said, there will be a speedy date for a full hearing and I remain confident that we will be ultimately successful.

“I am absolutely committed to the construction of the A6, and will now explore our options for commencing construction on the unchallenged section of this project.”
