Sinn Fein Councillor Hearty has said that the road markings upgrade recently carried out in Crossmaglen were badly needed.

“I’m delighted and relieved to see that this work has been carried out as many of the junctions in the town were quite dangerous,” the Sinn Féin representative told Newry Times.

“In many instances the lines on the road were almost completely gone, which was particularly worrying as a number of these were near schools. There are a number of other junctions in the town that need upgrading, particularly in housing estates, and I have been assured by Roads Service that this work will be carried out.

“However, I was disappointed by the reaction of council officials to my concerns regarding the junction at the Culloville Road onto the Square,” he said.

“Officials were of the opinion that signage and road markings at the junction were adequate and while they may be fine for people from the area who are used to the junction they can be deceiving for people new to the area.

“With the recent launch of our campaign to promote tourism in the area I have asked Roads Service officials to bear this in mind and look at the junction again.

Hearty added, “I also raised the issue of road reinstatement as Water Service has recently laid new water mains and I requested that Roads Service make sure the reinstatement is up to scratch.”
