8. asked the Minister for Regional Development what plans he has to reconsider the proposed access arrangements from St. Michael’s College, Enniskillen, to the college playing fields, which will be affected by the proposals for the new Cherrymount link road. (AQO 1060/08)

A LeasCheann Comhairle. I recently met representatives from St Michael’s College, and my Department’s Roads Service is in consultation with it about the provision of a footbridge from the college to its playing fields. The proposed location will provide access to the football pitches from St Michael’s and will also facilitate the needs of schoolchildren attending two other schools, St Joseph’s College and St Fanchea’s College, as well as providing access for the general public.

I thank the Minister for that assurance. What plans does the Minister have to extend the Cherrymount link road, from its proposed route onto the Tempo Road, onto the A4 Belfast Road?

It is expected that the statutory procedures that are associated with the Cherrymount link road scheme will be published next month, and that will bring the procurement of that transport link to the next stage.
