Warrenpoint Sinn Fein Councillor, Michael Ruane has expressed his dismay at the failure of Roads Service to complete urgent resurfacing work on the Bridal Lonan in Warrenpoint, which he described as ‘being in an appalling state of repair’.
Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane said, “I warned the Roads Service as far back as October 2011 at a multi-agency meeting that the road surface at that time was showing distinct signs of failing, largely as a result of damage incurred over the previous two winters.”
Councillor Ruane went on to say that he has had the issue on the agenda of every meeting that he has attended with Roads Service since and in addition he has been in regular contact with the Section Engineer both by telephone and e-mail.
He added, “I believe this to be one of the worst urban road surfaces in the council area and, because of its location it is imperative that is resurfaced without any further delay. As a local resident myself, I can understand only too readily the anger and frustration of neighbours who have been contending with potholes for the last two years and I am now calling on Roads Service to make the necessary funds available immediately without any more excuses or temporary repairs.”
Residents in the area who have issues with the road surface should contact the Roads Service office directly on 0283025333 and voice their concerns.
