The present may not have come wrapped with a bow but the news that Roads Service has committed to resurfacing a section of Betty’s Hill Road and Chapel Road, Ballyholland will be well received by residents.

The Assemblywoman commented, “Having made representations to Roads Service on the condition of Betty’s Hill Road and Chapel Road, Ballyholland the government department has agreed to resurface sections of the roads that are particularly hazardous.

McKevitt added, “This is good news for the Ballyholland community, particularly for residents who live along these routes or use them in their daily commute. Once the work is completed it will make travelling along these roads less challenging and safer for all.”
