Engineers who have completed electrical courses could be in demand in Northern Ireland after a project estimated to cost about £250 million was approved in the Blaris area of County Antrim in Northern Ireland.

The huge business and housing complex is being developed by Snoddons and Killultagh and Stormont environment minister Edwin Poots has suggested that construction could start on the site next year, reported 4NI.

Workers who have taken electrical courses could see employment opportunities appear when the project kicks off, since some of the structures set to be built include a hotel, a school and a neighbourhood centre, noted the internet resource.

"It will improve the infrastructure in the city, including the development of the Knockmore Sprucefield link road", explained Mr Poots, who stressed the importance of the jobs created by the initiative.

Irish building materials firm CRH, which owns Northstone and Farrans in Northern Ireland, released a statement this week suggesting that it is optimistic about business over the second half of the year.
