Sinn Féin Councillor Colman Burns has contacted the Roads Service Department to show his dissatisfaction and frustration at the continued and extended closure of the Cregganduff Road, to facilitate the laying of a water pipe line. Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Burns said, “Last August the council was informed by NIW, that the Cregganduff Road would be closed Monday to Friday, 8 to 6 pm, from 3rd September until the 10th October, due to water pipe laying. This was accepted by the people living on the road as a necessary inconvenience that was for the overall good of the district. “Unfortunately, these dates were not adhered to and we have a situation whereby road works continue along the road and the road remains closed after 6pm and throughout the weekends, in breach of the agreed closure times.” The councillor continued, “I spoke to Road Service officials to stress the frustration from road users at this continuing breach of the agreed closure dates and times. “I stressed how important it was to get this situation remedied as soon as possible given the fact that there are thriving businesses along the Cregganduff Road that are dependent on easy access to their premises, especially at the weekends. Burns added, “Road Service said that they were unaware of these breaches and would investigate the issues. I am hopeful that the situation can be remedied and the residents and businesses can get some relief from the present unacceptable position they find themselves in.”
