Sinn Féin MLA Sean Lynch has welcomed progress on the £30m Enniskillen Southern Bypass project.

The Sinn Féin transport spokesperson and vice chair of the DRD committee said;

"Today's announcement that significant progress has been made on the £30 million Enniskillen Southern Bypass project.

"Transport NI will now appoint engineering consultants to take this vital infrastructural project forward.

"This will also involve the delivery of an environmental statement and draft statutory orders which will be further steps towards having this bypass in place.

"We have been campaigning for this bypass for many years and the local community in Enniskillen will be pleased with today's positive announcement.

"Not only would it reduce traffic around the town significantly for the local community but it would also improve travel times for those travelling through.

"We look forward to the completion of this important project as soon as possible."
