Joint Project Team Statement from DFI, AECOM and SWS JV

Given the current situation around Covid 19, we’d like to clarify that construction of the A6 Dungiven to Drumahoe Dualling project will continue.

As the health & safety of personnel and the public is our number one priority, the A6 project team continue to monitor Government advice and have put in place mitigation to safeguard all personnel.

As such, no face to face landowner meetings will be arranged unless absolutely necessary.  If one is required, you’ll initially be contacted by telephone. As usual if you wish to contact the project team please ring us on 0800 048 2906 or email us at info@a6d2d.com
