Sinn Fein Councillor Colman Burns recently met with Roads Service to discuss the condition of a number of roads in the district. In particular, sections of the Freeduff and Tullynavall Roads and the Carron Road outside St Patrick’s Primary School, were high on the list of roadway needing attention.

Speaking after the meeting Councillor Burns said, “This was a very frank meeting where we discussed a number of concerns regarding some roads in the district that have had very little or no work done to them over a number of years. The Freeduff Road, from Ballyfanahan Bridge to Cullyhanna village needs attention to address many defects as does some parts of the Tullynavall Road.”

“At present, the water pipe-laying project is ongoing and this, Road Service officials said, is the reason that work has been delayed for so long outside Crossmaglen Primary School. Roads Service officials will report back, in the coming weeks, on their plans for these and other roads throughout the area,” he continued.

Councillor Burns concluded, “Sinn Fein Councillors will continue to bring issues such as potholes, flooding or any road defects to the attention of roads service. People with knowledge of these or any other problems, should contact a Sinn Fein Councillor or the Sinn Fein Office and we will bring the issue to the relevant authorities.”
