Celebrating the upcoming opening of 7km of dual carriageway between M22 - Toome to live traffic from 5 August 2019.

Community 5k & 10k Celebration Event

The A6 Randalstown to Castledawson Dualling Scheme will soon reach a major project milestone, as live traffic enters the carriageway between Randalstown – Toome for the first time from Monday 5 August 2019.

 To celebrate this major stride forward in progress, the A6 Dualling Scheme project team held a community 5k Fun Run / Walk and 10k Cycle on the new carriageway between Randalstown - Toome. 

The event was a unique opportunity for the local community to get a preview of the new dual carriageway, prior to it's official opening and an opportunity for the project team to thank the local community for their continued support during the project's construction.

 

The event was attended by an estimated 350 members of the public, who helped raise over £3,000 for Duneane Primary School and Moneynick Primary School, two small rural schools leading the way in shared education. The two schools had a unique opportunity to work in partnership with the Graham Farrans Joint Venture to raise profile and raise funds at this community celebration event. 

We would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make Friday’s event the success that it was!  All donations were very gratefully received.

With thanks to the event sponsors;
