Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane and Councillor Peter Kearney have called for traffic calming measures to be implemented in the Ballyholland area.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ms Ruane stated, “Sinn Féin carried out a local issue survey in the Ballyholland area and we have received a number of complaints from residents living in the Ballyholland that traffic regularly speeds through this built-up area which is home to a number of elderly residents and young families. It is important that we protect the lives of the local residents by putting in measures that will slow the traffic down in this residential area.”

She added, “Whilst I understand that Roads Service is working to a limited and possibly reduced budget there are genuine road traffic safety measures that could be rectified at a reasonable cost. I will be in contact with DRD Road Service to push for a monitoring system to be installed so that we can measure the traffic flow and then move to install the most efficient system to manage traffic in this area.”
