December 10, 2021

Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon has visited Cookstown where the preferred route for the A29 Cookstown Bypass has been unveiled this week.

Details of the proposed new route have been on display at the Burnavon Arts and Cultural Centre and virtually on the Department for Infrastructure website.  

During a visit to the public exhibition today Minister Mallon said:  “I am committed to delivering for all communities across Northern Ireland.  Last year I announced my intention to progress a number of strategic infrastructure and flagship projects.  One of these projects was the A29 Cookstown Bypass so I am delighted to be in Cookstown this week where we are unveiling the preferred route.“The proposed route, which is approximately 4km in length, provides a significant opportunity to remove strategic traffic from the town centre of Cookstown.  This will help to reduce traffic congestion, increase road safety and improve air quality".
