Delivered by the Department for Infrastructure the £220million A6 scheme will see the construction of 25.5 kilometres of new high standard dual carriageway between Dungiven and Drumahoe, including a bypass of Dungiven, with roundabouts connecting the scheme to the existing road network at either end.
The A6 is a strategically important route as it connects the North West to Belfast and beyond. The existing road carries around 15,000 vehicles per day and with traffic levels continuing to grow, this very significant investment from the Department for Infrastructure will greatly improve road safety and journey times by reducing congestion.
Sacyr, Wills Bros Ltd, Somague Joint Venture have been awarded the contract and are responsible for the design and construction of the project.
The construction of this scheme will help to secure jobs in the construction industry, contribute to the economic development of the region and bring long term benefits to road users and local communities.
Works commenced on the project in April 2018 and is scheduled for completion by Spring 2022.
This major transport infrastructure project will upgrade the network between Drumahoe and Dungiven, including a bypass of Dungiven, with roundabouts connecting the scheme to the existing road network at either end.
