- Join the Save Newgrange/Alternative A5 Alliance demonstration at Dail Eireann, Kildare St, Dublin tomorrow at 1.00pm
Roads lobby groups, from both sides of the Border, concerned over the proposed new billion euro A5/M2 Dublin to Derry road, will be staging demonstrations in Dublin this Friday. We are inviting you to join us for a brief discussion and photocall, outside Dail Eireann, Kildare, St, this Friday at 1.00pm.
The groups are calling on Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar, to pull the funding for the billion euro project in the upcoming Budget, (which includes 500m to be paid to NI authorities), and investigate lower cost alternatives, such as upgrading the existing A5/N2, and re-opening of railway.
- The Alternative A5 Alliance, is based in Northern Ireland, and is opposed to the construction of a new greenfield motorway, because of economic, community and environmental concerns.
- Don't Bypass the Bypass, based in Monaghan, is opposed to the building of another new bypass, since once was recently completed.
- Save Newgrange is opposed to proposals for the Slane Bypass section of the new Dublin to Derry Road, which is to pass within 500m of Newgrange/Bru na Boinne UNESCO World Heritage Site.
All three groups are working in co-operation, and would welcome any support you can give in the run-up to Budget Day, on 6 December.
