Sinn Féin Councillor Turlough Murphy continues to put pressure on Roads Service to resurface the road in Camlough Village and to look again at Mountain road in Camlough.

Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Murphy explained, “I have contacted Roads Service on a number of occasions to request that they resurface the road through Camlough Village. The condition of the road is unacceptable and needs addressed.

“I was recently informed by the section engineer with Roads Service, in a presentation to the council on the 22nd May, one of the main priorities of the programme is to resurface the road in Camlough Village.

“Roads Service are hoping to carry out work in the summer when schools are off and there is a minimum amount of traffic on the road.

Murphy added, “I was also assured that Roads Service will look again at Mountain Road in Camlough, as this road is structurally damaged and the potholes are dangerous. This has meant that the Mountain Road is treacherous for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.

“I will continue to liaise with the Roads Service Department to get these roads addressed.”
