asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the progress of the building of the Dungannon bypass.

It was originally proposed that the T3 trunk road bypass of Dungannon should be constructed to motorway standards. However, it is now clear that this could not be justified on the grounds of either predicted traffic demand or economic benefit.A series of consultations with those district councils affected by the bypass proposals has recently been concluded and the construction of a high standard single carriageway all-purpose road in lieu of the proposed motorway has been authorised. Survey and design work on the single carriageway bypass is now in progress and physical work on the ground is programmed to start towards the end of next year.
