Sinn Féin Councillor Pat McGinn has revealed that the Roads Service has given a commitment to address the frequent flooding that is causing a serious hazard at the junction of Kidds Road onto the Armagh Road. Speaking about the commitment, Mr McGinn said, “At a recent meeting with Roads Service Officers I discussed this issue and the issue of the continuous serious flooding on the old Belfast Road just down from the roundabout. Roads Service did some works at the Belfast Road site and so far no further flooding has occurred. A commitment was made to address the serious flooding at the junction of Kidds Road onto the Armagh Road which at times is extremely dangerous. This will be looked at when works begin on the resurfacing along a section of the Millvale Road.”

McGinn also said that both he and his colleague Mickey Brady MLA had made representations about the condition of a section of the road surface in Cloughreagh Park. “The road condition in Cloughreagh Park near the turning into JFK is totally unacceptable and has the potential to damage not only vehicles but cause injury to motorists and pedestrians”.

The Sinn Féin elected representative also reminded people to check their Salt Boxes/Salt Piles and if they needed replenished to contact him at 02830261693 or the Roads Service Office in Newry 02830253333.
