Praise for airport contractor

AIRPORT contractor Lagan Construction has been praised by deputies following news that the £80.4m. project will finish on time and on budget.
Public Services minister Paul Luxon said he was delighted with the progress that had been made as he updated members at the mid-point of the project.
‘We must acknowledge the contractor that has shown itself to be an excellent company,’ he said.
Deputy Lester Queripel asked if the Lagan tractors were connected to the number of potholes appearing around the island.
‘I can’t give absolute assurance but the States road project team, who are very experienced, have given no evidence that Lagan vehicles have had any impact,’ said Deputy Luxon. ‘If you look at the routing agreed, you’ll see that the impact of the vehicles is not as significant as imagined – the use of broader tyres has helped to spread the impact.’
