A spokesperson for the Department for Infrastructure said: “The Department welcomes today’s Judicial Review Appeal Judgement upholding the original judgement in favour of the Department. Both judgements confirm the Department’s robust economic, engineering and environmental assessment procedures.
“As a result of the judgement the Department will commence construction of the Toome to Moyola River section of the scheme which had been delayed due to the legal challenge.
“The A6 scheme is fundamental in enhancing connectivity, improving journey times and unlocking the economic potential of the whole region. Local communities will also see economic and social benefits resulting in employment opportunities from a scheme of this size.”
