In response to the publishing of Draft Orders in February 2016, representations were made to the Department for Infrastructure indicating that opportunities for the implementation of active and sustainable transport initiatives on and in the vicinity of the existing A5 had not been fully explored.  Consequently the Department committed to the development of a strategic Masterplan that would seek to identify these opportunities between New Buildings and Aughnacloy.
